I have a virtual machine with 1.5 GB RAM. It always goes at 100% CPU, or almost always, and it is really difficult to deal with. I hit the start button within that VMWare and it reacts in 10 seconds or even longer, normally longer ! .
I have tried increasing the RAM, with no results.
VMWare tells me the “recommended RAM is 1024 MB” and I don’t know why this recommendation.
The host operating system is Windows 8, with 8 GB RAM.
The guest operating system is 2008 R2, with the TMG 2010 firewall. I have others 2008 R2 with no issues.
Could I put 2 Virtual CPUs into my VMWare machine? I really don’t know how to improve the performance other than increasing the guest ram.
