Hi,

 

Could you post the XMLs of your VMs? Configurations on passthoug, CPU and disks.

Hi I dont have my vms set up like that anymore. But i do have 2 separate gaming vms.

 

When I had the 3 as in this video how the cpus were split was the main thing.

I gave 3 cores to each vm with one core for 'emulatorpin'  so a total of 4 cores for each vm.

So 1 vm would have 3 cores (3,4,5,17,18,19) then 1 core for emulatorpin (2,16)

However each core that was used for 'emulatorpin' was given to all of the 3 vms.

For example  <emulatorpin cpuset='2,6,10,16,20,24'> (all 3 cores used in emulatorpin)

 <vcpu placement='static'>6</vcpu>
  <cputune>
    <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='3'/>
    <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='4'/>
    <vcpupin vcpu='2' cpuset='5'/>
    <vcpupin vcpu='3' cpuset='17'/>
    <vcpupin vcpu='4' cpuset='18'/>
    <vcpupin vcpu='5' cpuset='19'/>
<emulatorpin cpuset='2,6,10,16,20,24'
  </cputune>

 

Here is a full xml from one of the vms when i did this. There is a rom file added for the gpu as it is an nvidia in the primary slot. Also there is harddrive passed through (partition 2 of it) Also this vm has a phyical network card passed and a usb 3.0 controller.
