I noticed when using both XFCE VMs they eat up most of my system resources, so I checked exactly how much they were set to use and noticed both the gateway and workstation were using 4 cores of my quad core CPU. Could I reduce this further to say, 2 cores? Maybe 3?
Also, I’ve considered running the CLI gateway with the XFCE workstation but couldn’t find any guides for how to do so. Not to mention that I would find it pretty intimidating to have to function entirely within the CLI.
I’d have no problem changing the passwords and updating the software, but what else would I have to routinely do within the gateway? Would I still have to perform the Whonix check? If so, how would I do it? And what else would I have to do to use and maintain the gateway?
