Due to Whonix 14 - increase RAM to 1024 MB? I have been experimenting with zram.
Problem is, with 1 CPU core only (current VirtualBox default), when RAM is full, VM CPU gets 100% used, feels like locking up (would take ages) and makes the system unusable. That while the host CPU is still underused. So that does not help too much.
Should we increase VirtualBox (and KVM…) virtual CPUs from 1 to 4 or so? Any reason against it?
Whonix 14 download version requires 64 bit hosts anyhow. How many CPU cores do most 64 bit hosts nowadays have anyhow?
What if we set VirtualBox virtual CPUs in ova settings by default to 4 but the host system only has 2 CPUs? Will VirtualBox automatically fix it (reduce virtual CPUs) or just show some error message?
Does someone have two cores only? Can anyone test that?
