Guest CPU 100% Usage vs Host 10-15% Utilization

This post was originally published on this site

My Guest VM is currently running extremely slow. It’s constantly as CPU Utilization: 100%, Speed: 2.90 GHz and Memory Utilization: ~50%. At the same time, the host CPU is showing Utilization: 15%, Speed: ~1.5 GHz AND Memory Utilization ~48%.

 

How would I go about allowing the Guest VM to uitilise more of the host CPU? I’ve tried modifying the Number of processors and Number of cores per processor though I haven’t been able to notice any difference.
