I have intel i7 processor with 4 physical cores and each one has 2 threads which is total 8 logical cores.
I intent to have virtual machine with windows server that will use all processor potential. While crating virtual machine with VMWare workstation it asks me to set number of processors and number of core per processor, but there is no threads mentioned at all. Is it correct to set number of processors to 4 assuming that processors are cores on i7 and to set number of cores per processor to 2 assuming that it is number of threads per core.
Is this right way of thinking about it? Or, is it even possible to enhance virtual machine with with threads from processor's cores?
