Memory starved is not the right word. Rather the apps we have are more memory 
intensive than CPU.

We are running PS 4.0 on XenServer 5.5 update2 using Provisioning server as the 
deployment method(caching on local disk).

2 vCPU's
8 gb ram with PAE turned on.

Getting a 3-1 consolidation of this config. Our apps are memory starved and not 
CPU.

Hi all, does anyone have any guidelines for Citrix VM servers on ESX 4.0?
I currently have 5 Windows 2003 R2 PS 4.5 servers on ESX 4.0.  They are 
assigned 1 virtual CPU and 2GB of Memory.
They're all spiking up to 100%CPU for extended periods of time with about 15 
users each.  Should I have 2 CPUs or 4?
Any other advice would help.

Thanks,
