Let's assume I had enough free ressources to allocate in my VMware vSphere 5.1 Landscape.
Can anyone point me to an optimal CPU Configuration (Number of virtual sockets / number of cores per socket) in regard of the sweet spot.
Where does allocating more sockets and cores not benefit the VM anymore? Also, does this sweet spot vary between a Windows 2012 and a 2008 R2 Server? Assume I am talking just about the OS performance, not the performance of any possible applications running on the server.
Thank you for your inputs.
