In the nova.conf we can set the allocation ratio for RAM and CPU by using the following flags :

ram_allocation_ratio= < >
cpu_allocation_ratio= < >

Sorry... i don't understand. cpu_allocation_ratio = 16.0 as default value. But in nova compute logs, vcpu number not change ( = 8 in my case). Same behavior for horizon, even though it is possible use a greater number of vcpu then 8. Where i'm wrong? Thank You
