I installed vmware hypersivor on physical machine with 2 Processors each having 8 cores.
In the summary its showing as follows:
Processor Sockets: 2
Cores per Socket: 8
Logical Processors: 32
So now when creating virtual machine I get two options for allocating cpu which are as follows:
Number of virtual sockets
Number of cores of sockets
Total number of cores---- is what comes from above two options and each above option drop down box gives upto 32
So If I want to create a virtual machine with 6 core then how is the actual cpu distributed from phyiscal side, vmware host side and virtual machine side. Also how to assign cpu for virtual machine by number of virtual sockets or number of cores of sockets.
Please elaborate in a nutshell.
