Solved Is there any tool that assigns individual proc cores to vms? Tags: CPUs Laptops Core Intel i7 Last response: March 5, 2010 4:15 AM in CPUs Share november_rain007 March 4, 2010 7:39:03 PM Hi. I recently bought an i7 core laptop and wanted to simulate multiple virtual machines on it. I want to create 3 VMs and assign specific core to each VM. Is there any tool that supports that? i7 -|-Core 1 - Host OS |-Core 2 - VM 1 |-Core 3 - VM 2 |-Core 4 - VM 3 Is this kind of setup possible!? Thanks AB More about : tool assigns individual proc cores vms Best solution sanchz a b à CPUs March 4, 2010 9:06:16 PM You could manually set each "process's" affinity to each core in task manager. There might be some app/ flags (to set affinity automatically upon load) to do this... mindless728 a b à CPUs March 5, 2010 2:10:32 AM i wouldn't worry about it too much as long as you have windows 7 as the host OS it has a quite good Task Scheduler also, the VM program should allow you to assign so many cores for the VM so one can have one core, 2, 3 ,4 Can't find your answer ?
