We're configuring one of our servers following Wowza Performance Tuning Guide, and we have a doubt I'd like your help with.
The Wowza servers we're running are actually Hyper-V machines with 4 processors.
Windows' Device Manager lists those CPUs as being Intel E5504. Having a look at that CPU model specs (here), I see that each of those processors have 4 Cores (and no HyperThreading).
So, doing the math, I should have 4 CPUs, with 4 Cores each. According to Wowza Performance Tuning Guide, I should set [total-core-count] to: 4 (processors) x 4 (cores each) = 16. Does that make sense?
What puzzles me is that, if I really had 16 cores, I should be seeing 16 CPUs on my Task Manager's Performance Tab. However, I only see 4...
Am I missing something? What is the actual value I should use as my total-core-count?
Thanks in advance!
