On a previous post I asked:


I realize I am slow, but I need to ask this another way

Assuming I have a 4 core Intel with HT machine running, and I do the following

  - Click on VM->Edit Seetings-Hardware tab->CPUs

  - Number of virtual sockets:      1

  - Number of cores per socket:     2
                                  
Does this mean I am using 2 of the 4 physical cores available in my system

Open in new window



To which Frosty555 responded:  very likely yes (but there is no 1 to 1 correspondence)

OK, I get that, and I thnank everyone for their patience on this subject.

One most question, If I assign the following:

  - Click on VM->Edit Seetings-Hardware tab->CPUs

  - Number of virtual sockets:      1

  - Number of cores per socket:     2

Open in new window


When I go to the VM, and examine /proc/cpuinfo, should I see 2 processors or 4 processors

Thanks
