Which two might improve the user experience?

An administrator has deployed a new virtual machine on an ESXi host. Users are complaining of poor performance on the virtual machine performance tool display the result shown in the exhibit.

Which two might improve the user experience? (Choose two)

Add a vCPU to the virtual machine

Remove CPU affinity on the advanced CPU setting of the virtual machine

Migrate the virtual machine to another ESXi host

Remove the limit on the CPU settings of the virtual machine


The picture shows CPU at 100% in VM, not CPU shortage on ESX server.
A,D – these 2 options both increase the amount of CPU allocated to VM
B,C – these 2 options change the physical CPU allocated to VM, but this was not the problem shown

    Where is the documentation for this? Because best practice is A and C. D is also correct if there are limits on the VM. In a default implementation however, there is no limit set nor is there CPU affinity. Therefore, since I can’t see the screen in enough detail to determine if there is a limit or CPU affinity, I must assume that A and C are correct.

    I thought A and C as well. But the question does not state there are multiple ESXi hosts, or that the current ESXi host is in a cluster. Therefore, I have to agree that A and D are correct.

    Screen shot shows VM CPU maxed out while host CPU have low load which means not enough CPU resource was allocated to the VM. A & D are only answers involving VM CPU.

    Migrating a VM that is using full CPU isnt goung to change the fact the the VM is still using fullCPU. If so that would be a great feature and id just costantly migrate my SQL VMs to keep the CPU load down. Lol !
