Re: [Xen-devel] VCPU cores & sockets

Can we present cores vs sockets for guest VCPUs?
Right now, the number of total processors can be specified, but can we specify cores per socket?

I see this potentially being an hvmloader function, as part of its acpi build code.
Could this be accomplished more generally?


This already exists, It's supported via a CPUID configuration.
Right now there are just some comments in the xmexample.hvm file.

I think it would be better to have an entry in the config file like you suggest. I will work on that.
