Increase memory and CPUs on Vagrant Virtual Machines

Last post I showed how to create multiple nodes in a single Vagrant project. Usually "ubuntu/trusty64" box comes with 500MB. For some developers need more RAM, more CPUs. From this post I'm going to show how to increase the memory and number of CPUs in a vagrant project. Run below commands
mkdir testProject1
cd testProject1
vagrant init
Then edit the Vagrant file like below.

Above changes will increase memory to 8GB and also it will add one more core. Run below commands to start the vagrant machine and get the SSH access.
vagrant up
vagrant ssh
If you have an existing project, you just have to add these lines. When you restart the project memory would be increased.
