I've just received an upgraded Host machine, and am looking to push some of those advances to my workstations Guest OS(s). In particular, I used to have a single processor, with 2 cores, so my Guest OS only had 1/1.
Now, I've got a single processor with 8 cores, so I'm curious about what would be recommended for my Guest OS now?
- 1 processor/4 cores?
- 2 processors/2 cores?
- 4 processors/1 core?
My instinct says to stick with the number of physical processors (or less), but, is that based on reality? I spent a good while looking for an answer to this, but perhaps my google-karma isn't in my favor today.
