Linux, VMWare, cpuinfo

On a system that appears to have 32 cores with HT, I have the following

A VM that is assigned 8 vCPU

Inside that VM on RHEL, I see the following in cpuinfo

[root@rhvm1 proc]# vi cpuinfo
cpu MHz         : 2699.999
cache size      : 20480 KB

fpu             : yes

address sizes   : 40 bits physical, 48 bits virtual

Open in new window


This seems to suggest that the machine has 8 cores, not hyper threaded
