Hello again, I hope to get a reply on this one.. I have a vCluster with 8 nodes ESXi 6.5, all HP DL560 G10 with 4 sockets. All with HT enabled. However 7 show the following numa nodes count:
[root@esx000009:~] esxcli hardware memory get | grep NUMA
NUMA Node Count: 8
and one only shows the following:
[root@esx000008:~] esxcli hardware memory get | grep NUMA
NUMA Node Count: 4
why would that be?? They are all alike... I can't think of anything that clarifies this ackward host
Hi Pawel, they are identical in everything. They were purchased at the same time. They all have 1.5TB RAM each. The ones that show 8 numa nodes in esxtop they show 8 numa nodes of 196GB RAM while that only one that has 4 shows 4 numa nodes of 375GB RAM. I don't understand why the difference..
how many cores per socket ..? i would like to know the total number of cores you have on the server..
also can you navigate through these BIOS setting and share an output..
22 cores per socket and 4 sockets..
so that is a total of 88 cores. that is a lot of compute power
