VMWare, Number of processors
Posted on 2012-09-07
I have a machine with 2 sockets and 6 cores per socket
The cores are Hyperthreading enabled according to the VMWare Host
I have 2 Windows VM's. I set them both to 1 soecket and 6 cores to fully utilize the 12 physical cores.
However, when I bring up the VM and look in the Task Mgr, and hit the Performance tab, I see 6 cores.
I expected to see 12 cores because I allocated 6 physcial cores, and each core has 2 threads, so the Task Mgr should show me 12 cores
Am I missing something
How should I diagnose
