Hyper V Virtual Processors
Posted on 2012-03-29
We have recently installed an HP machine with a Xeon X5650 @ 2.67GHz with 12 cores on a client site. We have installed the Hyper-V role and configured a 2003 x64 Terminal Server (TS2). Hyper-V only allows for 4 Virtual Processors, so we have applied this many
Another Terminal Server we have on site (which we built ourselves - TS1) has an i7 860 @ 2.8GHz with 8 cores
TS1 is currently housing around 40 users and the CPU sits around the 10% mark
My question is, what kind of load can I expect TS2 to handle? We have only moved 6 users so far and the CPU is already around the 10 - 20% mark. All users have the same software and processes
TS2 has more RAM but is using SAS 10k's in RAID 10 as oppose to SSD's in RAID 1 for TS1
We have tried to find how the virtual processors relate to the physical cores but it gets quite confusing...
