Hi Everyone,

When we set the base line they asked the for informatioin total number of host, total number of core and CPU in target environment.

When I put total number of Hosts more then 17 then total sessions per core become to zero and core login rate become to infinity.
What is meant by Total number of Host, CPU, and Core in target Environment ?

Please see the attached file for more information.

Hello Hafizdir,

I have replied to this same question in an email you have sent us. But just to clarify the reason:

"What has been entered is that there are 25 hosts, that each have 24 cpu's and each CPU has 12 cores. Which sounds like a very cool server, but i do not think it exists just yet. How its meant to be filled in is:
- Give the number of total hosts (i.e. 25)
- Give the number Physical CPU's per host (so most commonly this is 2)
- Give the total cores per Physical CPU (which i think is probably 12 in your case)
- Last but not least you can configure HyperThreading aswell.

Dear Tom,

Really thanks for help. I am just confused regarding the exact meaning of host here.
Does it mean in the context a session (virtual desktop) or a physical server?
The second thing is what do you suggest if the target environment is what is in the attachment?
Please, provide me with your justifications and explanations for the suggested numbers.
The last thing is that what and when (the cases) HyperThreading should be or shouldn't be used although hyperthreading is active in our server?
Please, Don't mind because we are asking these question for research purpose.
Thanks a lot :)

Hello Hafizdir,

No problem we are always happy to help, to answer your questions:
1) Yes you are correct by host we mean Physical Server.
2) In your scenario you have per host 2 CPU's each CPU has 6 cores, so 12 cores per host. And HT is active so enabled adding this will be 24 threads.

I hope this explains your scenario!
