The memory setting is the only one that is used when the VM is created. The
other VCL computer settings are ignored.
We could easily configure the number of CPUs a VM is configured with based on
the VCL computer setting. I have never looked into the more advanced vmx file
CPU settings. I have yet to find an all-inclusive page listing the possible vmx
settings, but this site has good info:
You can try out different settings by editing the vmx file and restarting the
VM. I don't know exactly what they do, but you may want to try:
If you find any additional settings that are helpful, we can look at
incorporating them into the code.

I am able to change ram on both the VCL web base side and the local
host php side. That works well.
On the php my admin computer side. I'm trying to give my Vmguest
accounts more speed. All vmware guest show up at 1.6ghz off a 2.4ghz
So it's using 1600mhz with a single core.
I thought that this was due to a hal file. I have changed the php side
for 2 cores. The image Side for 2 cores and made the image a muticore
hal. The vmware guest account still shows up at 1.6ghz at 2.4ghz

I can change the numbers on either side, but when any of the vmware
images are loaded. I only get 1.6ghz of speed, the ram is switching
just fine just not the cpu speed?
Does anyone have a solution or any idea on why this is not changing?
Here is a typical PHP side settings for my vmware guest accounts
Ram 1536 (Changing this isn't an issue and works great)
Processor Speed 2000 (Always shows up at 1.6ghz no more what speed
Number of Cores 1 (If i change it to 2 up to 8, it always stays at 1)
In the vmware guest account
Network Speed 100
