Utilizing all available CPU Hardware RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't believe Hyper-V supports the use of more than one Physical Processor but I figured asking won't hurt.

    I have a set of VM's that are using 1 of the 2 CPU's in a Dell R710 running Hyper-V 2019 as the OS.

    CPU's: 2x x5690

    RAM: 156GB

    Storage 12TB + 2.5TB

    My question is how can I set the VM's so they use BOTH Physical Processors, every time I search it up, irrelevant results appear instead.

    Also according to the NUMA tab and Task Manager the VM's are using 1 of the 2 sockets but can use up to 24 processors (which I assume is another word for cores/threads).

    Also if this is the wrong Forum category can someone redirect me to the correct one?
