How many CPU's to assign to my virtual machine?

Hi peeps!

I am installing Ubuntu 21.04 in Virtual Box
With 2 GB ram allocated and 40GB max space.

I wanna use this VM to make tutorials on UT,
So how many CPU’s should I assign to it??

It is currently set to 1
And the right-most is 12

Thank you in advance!! :pray: :pray: :pray:

You could maybe work along these lines :

If you’re doing a tutorial for CLI based stuff in a terminal - 2 CPU and 2 GB RAM should be plenty… But when you want to present some stuff around the GUI - then temporarily bump it up to 4 and 4 (4 CPU and 4 GB RAM)… I have a “jumphost” at one customer, running Ubuntu 18.04 (basically headless server install), 2 CPU, 2 GB RAM and only 16 GB HDD - that’s plenty…

So now,
I’ll keep it2 CPU, 2 GB Ram

And when needed more,
Will go to 4 CPU and 4GB Ram
