  • 1.  Virtual Server QuadCore

    Posted Jan 10, 2013 11:47 AM

    Ciao a tutti, ho la necessità di creare un virtual server (con w2k8 e processore quadCore = come da richieste del softwarista...)

    Come posso configurare il quadcore su una vcpu ?

    La mia infrastruttura dispone di due nodi esx 4.1 con le seguenti caratteristiche:

    (per ogni nodo)

    4 CPU  2,4GHz Intel Xeon

    (1 processor socket)

    (4 core x socket)

    (4 logical processor)

    Grazie

    Daniele

    Please see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1010184 for details

    You'd basically configure 4 vCPUS in the GUI and then set "cpuid.coresPerSocket" to 4.

    Setting "cpuid.coresPerSocket" to 4 will divide the configured number of vCPUs, which will result in a single virtual quad-core CPU that's presented to the guest OS. This does not necessarily mean it is ok with the guest's EULA (depends on the vendor), but at least this is how it works from a technical point of view.
