We have a MS 2008R2 VM on VMware vSphere 4.1 on a EMC VNX 5300 (SAS drives, FC). Our current problem is when we run a query on the SQL server the sqlservr.exe process will never go above 25% (it makes the query take longer than it should). We've given it 4 vCPU's, 8Gb of memory and the host is a Cisco UCS C210 M2 2x Intel X5650 with 96GB of memory. We aren't limiting resources. Please advise.
