Something is not 100% clear to me.
When enabling CPU hot add NUMA will not be extended into the virtual machine.
So usually it is recommended not to enable when running high usage VMs like MS SQL Server.
But from what I understand, if you size the VM to fit within a single physical Socket capacity NUMA is not relevant at all. So if I have an ESX with 2 CPUs that each has 16 cores and a total of 512GB RAM (filing all sots on the motherboard), and I have a SQL server with up to 16 cores and 256GB RAM I should not worry at all about any NUMA stuff.
Is this correct?
