HP proliant dl380p with 2 processor socket, 8 processor cores per socket, 32 logical processors. It's very confusing to me....
I am setting up 3 vms on vSphere Essentials with the following requirement:
1st vm (Windows 2008 R2 ENT) require 8 Virtual CPUs, 2nd (Windows 2008 R2 ENT) require 4 Virtual CPUs, 3rd (Windows 2008 R2 ENT) require 4 Virtual CPUs.
So what should I choose from the menu?
and is it possible to isolate the physical cpu so that they are not sharing the cpu resource?
vmware cpu
