guest OS boot process faster with less ressources
Posted on 2008-10-23
We have 4 Windows 2008 64bits guest OS in vmware ESX 3.5 update 2, all VM have been created from the same template. The physical host has 8 cores and 32GB RAM
Guest OS booting process is slower when the guest has 8GB and faster on the guest with 4GB, no matter how resources are shared (high share or normal share doesn't change anything)
I even tried to boot the guest OS alone (all other VM down)
Limit setting is set to unlimited.
Is it unusual or normal ?
