We are working with a server running ESXi 6.7 Enterprise Plus, and the mobo has 2 Xeon 10-core CPU's.
The host is moderately loaded, but strangely the ESXi monitoring screen shows MAX socket (package) 0 at 87% utilization, and socket (package) 1 at 2.5% utilization, and AVERAGE socket 0 at 20% and socket at 1%.
Is this normal? Should ESXi be balancing the load across the 2 CPU's? Or does it fill one and then start using the other.
License is installed and should support 2 sockets I think (though I don't see a CPU limit on the licensing tab of the GUI). I didn't purchase the hardware/license so I don't know too much about what was purchased but I can see the license tab and it looks right-ish. I just don't see anything that says 2 SOCKETS...so I'm wondering if another license needs to be purchased to activate the second socket? Does anyone with ESXi 6.7 with Enterprise Plus have a line in their license tab showing # of sockets licensed?
