I would need to know the max number of CPUs I can configure for a VM hosting Linux on Power7 servers.
Suse 11SP3 : 1024 logical CPUs https://www.suse.com/fr-fr/products/server/technical-information/
Redhat 6.4 : 128 logical CPUs http://www.redhat.com/resourcelibrary/articles/articles-red-hat-enterprise-linux-6-technology-capabilities-and-limits
First question : it is unclear wether they are speaking of threads or Virtual CPUs. My guess is threads, with STM4 on, therefore divide by 4 for vCPUs
Second question : so RedHat is not as capable as Suse on this aspect ?
Thanks for your thoughts,
