  4. Select Processor from the navigation pane on the left hand side. The Processor view allows you to view the current processor allocation, as well as to change it.

    Important

    The hot unplugging feature is only available as a Technology Preview. Therefore, it is not supported and not recommended for use in high-value deployments.
