The people in VMware Technical Marketing and Engineering have been very busy as usual and have recently published an excellent and deep paper on the VMware vSphere 5.1 CPU Scheduler. This paper is an update from previous papers that have been written about it. Getting the most out of your CPU’s and tuning the environment for peak performance from a CPU perspective starts here.
If you have a design to know how the VMware CPU scheduler works and why it is so efficient and high performance then this is the paper for you. This will cover all of the essentials like faireness, scalability, NUMA, and optimizations and tuning. If you are responsible for virtualizing Business Critical Apps then this is essential reading in my book. Enjoy.
