Add/Remove CPU capacity of virtual machine

I see within the alert definitions a way to automate the addition of CPU resources to a virtual machine experiencing stress but I do not see the ability to remove if the virtual machine is over provisioned. Does anyone know if this is possible? Maybe I am missing this option? I have the need to Add/Remove CPU/MEM resources as vRealize Operations sees fit but also would need to make sure this only occurs during specific times. (assuming I might be able to schedule it although ideally it would be best if it would happen the next time the virtual machine was restarted)  If anyone can offer any insight I would appreciate it. Thank you.

You can use  the Capacity Reclaimable dashboard to improve the efficiency of your environment by reducing the wastage of resources.

This dashboard allows you to select an environment and quickly view the amount of capacity which can be reclaimed from the environment in form of reclaimable CPU, Memory and Disk Space.

For more information, see Capacity Reclaimable section in the below vmware blog page.
