    I hope that it fixes the problem of trying to run all VMs on one cpu. I had a dell r710 with two six core processors only run the vms on one cpu. They were as follows:

    VM1 had two cpu cores
    VM2 had two cpu cores
    VM3 had two cpu cores
    VM4 had six cpu cores

    Hyper threading is turned on and I had warnings because all were trying to run on one cpu. VM Manager said that I had 24 cpus which is correct but it was only using half of one cpu. If I needed more than what I listed I would be in serious trouble. I also have 128gb of ram so plenty of resources running VM Server 3.4.3. Really disappointed with this product. I had to switch over to proxmox because of this.

    Hi Gary,

    I think that what you are trying to do is actually available.
    By the utility "ovm_vmcontrol" you can decide to pin VMs to specific cores/threads of your bare metal server.
    See https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E64076_01/E64083/html/vmadm-utilities-vmcontrol.html for further details.
