[Condor-users] Confused about multiple slots, VM_MAX_NUMBER, and VM_MEMORY !?!


I'd like to understand the concept of multi core PCs (which represent
themselves as independent slots in the Condor pool), in relation to the
VMware server for the VM Universe.

For example, a dual core PC (2 CPUs) with 4 GB RAM appears as
slot1 and slot2 in the condor_status list of the master and each slot
gets 2 GB of the total physical RAM.

What are the effects of VM_MAX_NUMBER and VM_MEMORY?
Are the values defined with respect to the whole PC, or per slot?

Should I allow two VMs or just one on a dual core PC?
I suppose this choice then also effects how much RAM I can assign
to a VM.....?!?
