VMWare, 5 core VM, and resulting processes
Posted on 2014-01-08
I need to ask the difference between a native 5 core machine and a 5 core VM
As I understand it a 5 core VM essentially has only 5 true processes, and everything else runs as a thread off of that process
In other words, an app that uses 5 processes on 5 cores native is not the same as the same app on a 5 core VM. In the 5 core VM you have 5 processes, and evrything else runs as threads under that process. Is that correct
If I have a 5 core HT (allocating a total of 10 cores to make the extra threads visable), I would then have 5 core processes with the apps processes being resolved to threds under the 5 core VM ?
How is my logic ?
