Viprion 2250 Blade - design question

I am going to setup a guest on viprion 2250 blade. thinking to use single core vs two cores since there would be around 40-50 vips only on that guest and don't want to waste resources. if I calculate memory then host will assign 3.05 gb to the guest and I think that's more than sufficient for guest with 50 vips. I don't know how to count cpu.


are you guys agree with me? thoughts? suggestions? what are advantage and disadvantages to use single core vs multi core?

    CPU usage will depend on virtual server type, features you are using. I think only way to get the the some baseline is by simulating your environment.
  • As Venky said, this will heavily depend on your specific setup. I would personally avoid a single core setup if you are going to be doing any manipulation of HTTP requests. If you're just doing TCP load balancing, you *might* be okay.
