  • Thread-topic: How are CPU's presented to DomU's?

We have some Windows HVM domains, and I am going to install some
software that is licensed by the processor. The physical machine has 2 x
Dual core processors, so in theory I should be able to give the virtual
machine access to 1 physical processors worth of CPU (eg 2 cores) and
only use a single processor license (Microsoft allows this on a physical
dual core processor), but I'm curious as to how the processors show up
in a DomU, whether they will be seen a 2 single cores or 1 dual core...
