Hi,

I was just wondering if there is any particular benefit in configuring a VM to use multiple sockets, e.g. 2 sockets, 5 cores, vs assigning it 1 socket, 10 cores?

I'm running some benchmarks trying to squeeze as much performance as I can and it seems that 1 socket, 10 cores is a little more performant.

Thanks,
Chris.
 
Thank you - I'll stick with 5 cores & 2 sockets for now in the hope it helps overall!

Chris.
