Out of cycles, despite I specified a giant amount of cycles

I specified a giant amount of cycles (for local testing) for stresser canister:

    "canisters": {
      "stresser": {
        "main": "motoko/main.mo",
        "type": "motoko",
        "cycles": 100000000000000000

Nevertheless, when I run it, cycles are not enough. What is my error?

$ make
dfx deploy stresser --with-cycles 99000000000000000
Deploying: stresser
Creating a wallet canister on the local network.
The wallet canister on the "local" network for user "default" is "bnz7o-iuaaa-aaaaa-qaaaa-cai"

Error: Failed while trying to deploy canisters.
Caused by: Failed while trying to deploy canisters.

    Failed to create canister 'stresser'.
      The replica returned a replica error: Replica Error: reject code CanisterError, reject message Canister bnz7o-iuaaa-aaaaa-qaaaa-cai is out of cycles: requested 99_000_000_000_000_000 cycles but the available balance is 99_998_729_277_381 cycles and the freezing threshold 173_237_730 cycles, error code None

A typical fragment of code of stresser canister:

await options.index.createSubDB({guid; dbOptions; userData = ""});

My question, put short: How do I increase the amount of cycles that I can use (in local deployment)?

OK, but why my configuration with "cycles" in dfx.json didn’t work?

Is this even a valid property?

I can’t find it in the reference Internet Computer Loading
