Last Modified: 2016-02-21
What do you find is a good number to look for in vcpu:cpu and vram:ram ratios? Or is it more determined by what kind of demand there is with the current ratios?

Trying to find some guide lines of best practices to follow for determining when you are getting over allocated on CPU and RAM.

Also what VM:host ratio do you find is a good number?
