Re: vCPU versus cpu entitlement

There is no good answer except - it depends...


It depends on how many guests, what are your sizing requirements, performance expectations etc.

Generally, it makes sense to keep the guests as narrow (less vcpus) as other requirements allow.

Sharing physical cpu among many different guests does have performance impact. So maybe start with

2 vcpu guests and if needed you can always change the config - trying different config is only

 a reboot and one hpvmnodify command away.
