VMWare, processes and threads and Linux

I am using VMWare, client v 5.5

My understanding  is that each VM contains only 5 processes per VM

Assuming that is correct, that brings me to the question of how to address apps that require a lot of processes defined in the limits.conf of Linux

On native machines, I current  assign something like

      xxx           hard    nproc          16384

Open in new window


So If each VM does not contain several processes, but instead several threads, how should I define my limits.conf to handle the threads necessary

Thanks

your Linux VM will have x processors, depending upon how many you have assigned, in the Edit Settings.

So how many processors have you assigned (sockets).

how would you define this on a physical computer?
