I go to  Host-SUmmary which reports the following:

Processors per socket:  8

Cores per socket:       2

Logical Processors:     32

Hyperthreading:         Active

Open in new window


so I have a 16 core HT machine

My VM is configured as follows:

Edit System->Hardware

CPU's  2

Open in new window


Edit System->Resources:

Advanced CPU's:   no affinity was set

Open in new window


Does this mean my VM is taking up 2 physical cores (and thus 4 logical cores), or 1 physical cores (and thus 2 logical cores)   ?

Thanks

1 vCPU maps to 1 physical core. The VM is set to 2 vCPU means 2 Physical cores.

Yes, your server configuration is HT, because Hyperthreading is ENABLED and ACTIVE.
