SQL 2014 Replication

Last Modified: 2018-02-22
Running 2 instances of SQL 2014 on same VM server. Both are replicating tables to other servers. When I create a new subscription to a server, it creates the subscription but never creates the table on the subscription server and does not send data. After looking the error in the SQL  Agent Job for the subscription,  It shows that it is waiting for a worker thread.
I then delete the subscription and redo it and sometimes it works.

I did not have this problem until we increased the CPUs from 2 to 4 and increased the memory.

Do I need to increase the worker threads? If so How much?
