Exchange 2013 resource question

I have an Exchange 2013 server with a 200gig EDB and 500 mailboxes.  The Exchange server is a VM running on Hyper-V.

My current resources are 48gigs RAM and 4 vCPUs.  Things are getting a little sluggish.

What are your thoughts on going to 128 gig RAM and 8 vCPUs?

I have the resources to spare on the host so....I'm mostly wondering if I'm just getting stupid on the granted resources.

Your thoughts?

Thanks

Cliff

I normally use Exchange calculator to get estimate size. Exchange is a resource intensive application and always hungry for RAM. So, increasing to 128 GB with 8CPUs will surely help. Also check what other process are taking RAM or CPU. Especially Antivirus. Make sure to set the proper exclusion for Exchange related binaries.
