Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,221

1. A method for distributed resource management in a hyper converged infrastructure, the method comprising:accessing, by a computer, a virtualized infrastructure comprising:
a plurality of host machines, each of said plurality of host machines having resources, the resources comprising:
a central processing unit (CPU), a memory, and a storage, each of the plurality of host machines communicatively coupled with one or more virtual machines;
disaggregating, by said computer, the resources in each of the host machines;
aggregating, by said computer, the resources based on a nature of the resource into a common pool of shared resources;
receiving, at said computer, a request for a workload application having a resource requirement;
matching, by said computer, the resource requirement of the workload application with resources in the common pool of shared resources; and
assigning, by said computer, the matched resources in the common pool of shared resources to the workload application, wherein said plurality of said host machines are communicatively coupled via a host bus adapter, said method further comprising:
utilizing a four queue depth capacity value for said host bus adapter when said workload application has a low performance requirement.
