dimes007 Posted May 2, 2016 Share Posted May 2, 2016 My new unraid box is a refurb Lenovo D30 Workstation. It has: Dual Xeon E5-2670 (and 800gb ssd, 128gb of ram. Not a ton of drive bays but for ~$1350 I'm so stoked!! but I digress) There are resources shared (L2 Cache?) between the two logical cpus (hyperthreading) per core. Does it make sense to pair these "sibling" logical cpus when allocating resources to docker images or vms? On my unraid dashboard these siblings are paired under cpu speed: "core 0 / 16 1589 MHz 1199 MHz" "core 1 / 17 1465 MHz 1499 MHz" Not sure if this pairing is intentional to show they're siblings or was just done to make the display nice. To me, it makes sense to pair the sibling cpus for a given workload. So for a 4 logical CPU VM I'd take cores 14, 30, 15, 31. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
