I have a gulftown 6 core processor, running Windows 7 as my host OS. I'm new to VMWare and have a few questions bout using multiple cores. I'm installing Ubuntu 10.4, the 32 bit version.
1. If I specify 1 processor with 4 cores for the virtual machine does that mean Ubuntu can use 4 of my cores?
2. Are cores reserved explicitly for vmware or are they shared with my windows processes?
3. When configuring a new vm I can specify the number of processors and the number of cores. From a vm perspective, what's the difference? Both are essentially multiple processors.
Thanks in advance.
