I have a 2 socket Intel machine with 8 cores per socket
For experimentation purposes, I want to run the most cores as possible on the VM
The Edit Settings of my VM under CPUs has the following CPUs set
Number of virtual sockets: 1
Number of cores per socket: 1
Total number of cores: 1
Open in new window
How can I set this to configure to push the maximum amount of cores possible to the VM
Does a single vCPU or core have to be left for the hypervisor ?
The Max could be 8 CPUs.
But you need to make sure your host OS is licensed to support those CPUs.
