Problem Solve

Effectively troubleshoot vCPU issues

Performance problems can be caused by a number of things, including overprovisioning and poor vCPU selection and assignment to VMs. Use these strategies to correct mistakes.


Provision the ideal number of vCPUs to a VM

Think about what types of workloads are running on a VM before assigning compute resources, and consider using vCPUs from different cores for demanding workloads.


The ever-shrinking server farm

Higher solid-state drive capacity and CPU core counts are just a couple of the factors leading to the next wave of server consolidation. So, footprint plan accordingly.
