I'm running a RC2 server on Win XP SP3 host, AMD Athlon 1,6MHz 1GB RAM, 512 dedicated to VM-s
When running Smoothwall or IPcop as vm they use about 50% of the cpu on a 30/30Mbit connection.
I was using an old standalone-box with pentium 5-600Mhz and 192MB RAM and that used about 50% cpu at the same traffic load.
Why is the cpu usage so high in vmware? Should'nt it be alot less on a much faster system?
