Is there any tool that assigns individual proc cores to vms?
Mar 4, 2010, 7:39 PM
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!?

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...

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
