If you have one vCPU assigned to this VM and the underlying pCPU is of frequency 2.59 GHz, assuming hyperthreading is in use here you may be able to use slightly more from a frequency perspective. If you look at the total resources consumed by this VM at the ESXi host level, it will be a little higher than that because ESXi consumes some of its own resources in order to run VMs. This is known as overhead.
Thanks for you response.
I just started learning ESXi , basically this how i visualize :
Based on above, vCPU can not exceed pCPU ( ignoring slight ESXi's overhead required for VM)
Am i on the right track ?
Thanks and have a good day!!
If you are new to ESXi and vSphere, I would actually recommend that you do some reading of the Mastering vSphere series. This is well as other books are some great resources to help newcomers learn the technology.
Thanks for the guidance. I just ordered it.
Have a nice day!!
