We have a beast of a server, running and AMD Ryzen 9 3950X (16 cores) CPU, a ton of memory and SSD storage.

What is the best config in VMWare ESXi for a PowerBuilder buildserver?

My understanding is that PB is fond of lots of cores and CPU clock frequency?

Right now it's setup with 6 sockets and 4 cores per socket, but it's barely faster to build than my Lenovo ThinkPad T480s laptop.

Compile time is around 1 hr 20 mins now, but it should be a lot faster on this server in my opinion.

Hi Bjarne,

AFAIK PowerBuilder uses only one thread. So the number of cores should be not importand.

Also, compilation (or Full Builds for that matter) are mostly I/O bound. So using SSD HD's or even in memory drives for TEMP files can really speed things up. ;-)
