question on CPU resources via allocation pools

   Hi all,

Fairly new to vcd and resource pools.  This may be an obvious question but I can't find any info on it.  How do the GHz you must populate in allocation pool at creation of the organization translate to actual cores and sockets? 


I have 3 hosts with two-socket CPU and 8 cores using Xeon E5-2600's. I create a new org and under the "configure allocation pool model" section, I assign 20 GHz to this pool.  Assume I guarantee 100% CPU resources.

How do I translate this into what cores are in use and how much of them are in use? I assume since this is an abstraction layer vcd does not care about cores and sockets, but I just can't wrap my head around how I can make the relation from the cores/sockets to GHz.
