I have the handy vCalendar by Jason Boche sitting on my desk here at work and as I was tearing through the days of this weekend I came across one tidbit that is extremely handy to know.
August 28th talks about vSMP VMs and Applications which license per CPU. Jason has a great tip that allows the application to see logical CPUs instead of Physical CPUs:
- Power off the VM & Edit the VM Settings
- Options tab
- General (in the Advanced options section)
- Configuration Parameters
- Add Row
- Enter “cpuid.coresPerSocket” in the Name column
- Enter a value of 2 or 4 in the Value column
Figured that this would be nice to share with everyone!
