VMWare, How do get a CUSTOM CPU Share

How do I get a CUSTOM CPU Share

IF I Enter the CUSTOM from the drop down box and enter 90 in it, does that mean I get 90 percent  of the CPU allocated to me ?

Can I reserve a share of 100 percent ?

Thanks

Each virtual machine is granted a number of CPU shares.  The more shares it gets of the processor, the more processor it gets!

remember the cake!

so if you allocate 3000 shares, that's high!

entering 90, does not mean 90%, it means 90 shares, which is very low.

if you want to ensure the VM, has the most shares, use HIGH.

or a custom value of 8000.

see here for a great explainatio of SHARES!
