I have been asked to increase the CPU's core on a VM. It currently has 8 cores total (see screenshot). If I need to increase it to 12 cores total, would I need to increase "Number of virtual sockets" or "Number of cores per socket"? Also, what number do i need to input to get it to 8 cores total?
Also, how do i know if i have enough hardware resources on the ESX host to support the CPU core increase? I have embedded the following screenshot which show the ESX host that the VM reside on. Do I have sufficient amount of hardware resources?
