  • 1.  per Core VM

    Posted Mar 24, 2011 06:10 PM

    I'm seeing the below msg on one of my ESXi 4.1 host.  It has 2 CPU's and 6 cores per socket.

    There are 4.25 virtual CPUs active per core on this host. The threshold value is 4

    What do I need to change to get rid of that msg? if so, what would be the impact?

    i've never seen that message on vCenter or ESX(i), where is it?  It shoudn't impact anything, it's more of a best practice warning.  Can you provide a screen shot, i'm curious as to the message.

    I have seen these types of messages using RVTools, but....

    Like Troy I have never seen this message either - there is nothing natively in ESXi or ESX that will cap the number of vCPU per core -

    I'm seeing the msg in RVTools under vHealth.

    ah... now I understand.  Those are just general best practice guidelines.  Also, you can adjust those values under Health--Properties.

    No worries....
