Co-Relation between vCPU & Server cores
Posted on 2011-02-22
Can some one please explain the relationship between Server cores & vCPUs.
The servers which we use for virtualizaton are Dual core or Quad core or 2x Quad Core.
When we create a VM on the Hypervisor, it asks for vCPU.
How do we best optimally use the hardware.
For example, if a server requires Quad core processor & if i have to virtualize the server, how many vCPUs do i allcate so as to not to impact the performance.
Is there any relationship between them?
