ESXi 5.5 - CPU's and sockets

Hi all,

I think I'm a little unclear on the assigning of vSockets and vCPU's.

I have a home lab computer that has one AMD 8350 (one socket and 8 physical cores). Let's say I'd like to split its resources between two VM's.

On VM one, I've specified:

"Number of virtual sockets" = 1  
"Number of cores per socket" = 4

Yet when I check the task manager, it seems I only have 1 CPU. What am I missing?

Screen grab
Thanks in advance.
