vBuckets are an internal representation of Buckets (and are not visible to the application) that allow Couchbase to shard data evenly across the cluster. The quantity of vBuckets is not configurable, but also is factored into the key hashing algorithm that determines which vBucket a k/v pair lives on (which is why it isn't configurable). Is there a reason you wanted to change this?
