Is mgmt0 still recommendted for peer keepalive?

Hello there. 

 

I'm just wondering why cisco do recommend mgmt0 for peer keepalive link for vPC?

I heard that at the beginning of the N5K, they only do support mgmt0 for it. but now there's no requirement .

 

But i can't find about N7K? What about N7K?

N7K was the same way at the first time? only mgmt0 was used for it??

 

And what about these days, is there any special reason that we use mgmt0? just only OOB? 

 

Oh... one more question !!  not about vPC. 

Can we manage CPU, MEMORY in each VDC now? I read some documents  that supports future. what about now, still same?

 

Thank you in advance.
