I just did a p2v conversion of our sql server witch had dual processors each with 4 cores. This gives me 8 logical processors. when i did the conversion i did not change the processors, so now i have a Virtual machine with 2 procs 4 cores each = 8vCPU. I want to use fault tolerance but i know i can only use one processor if i go that route. Is there any way to estimate how many processors my sql server VM needs?
Right now i am looking at the perfomance tab in vshpere client and i have an average usage in MHz for the last five days as 815 and maximum of 2137. To me this looks as though i have too much processor however i do not want performance to suffer in order to use Fault tolerance. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks experts!
