VIrtualization: CPU overprovisioning....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If you are using 1 computer running multiple vm's, can you stretch your processing power... ie... host has 4 CPU's, your running 4 vm's, each vm is allocated 2 cpu's ...
I know this doesn't work for RAM ... and does work for storage space... what about for CPU?

Yes... It just evens it out by the host OS. Most VMs just run like a process have anything else. Load is balanced by the host os in other words.

Sorry for double post can't find edit button.

It won't take a hit as long as not all the VMs are loaded to the max.

would it crash the Vm? or just stall it out..? Is there and documentation you know of to support this? ( I would like it to back up my actions...)
