How many cores per numa node on a Xeon E5-2430?
Posted on 2014-09-02
I have a server with two processors. They are listed as:
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2430 0 @ 2.20GHz (6 Cores)
I have to size a virtual SQL server on esxi 5.5 and need to match the cpus to the number of cores per NUMA node.
My question is, how many cores would equal one numa node in the above configuration? I would prefer not to give a virtual server all 12 cores if one numa node is 6 or less.
The servers have 192 GB of memory in them if that matters in the calculation.
