47 Dataplane Cores Support for VM-Series and CN-Series Firewalls

Add up to 47 dataplane cores on VM-Series and CN-Series firewalls.
Starting PAN-10.2, VM-Series and CN-Series firewalls support a maximum of 47 dataplane cores. Increasing the number of dataplane cores improve performance.
For VM-Series, if you have NUMA performance optimization enabled with custom dataplane core settings, the NUMA setting takes precedence.
For example, for a 64 CPU VM with NUMA performance optimization enabled and 47 dataplane core setting, the NUMA settings take precedence. The command—
show plugins vm_series dp-cores
displays—
Current DP cores:31 configured custom DP cores: 47 (Current total cores: 64)
