CPU resources and sharing
On each hardware node, there are 2 quad-core CPUs, amounting to a total of 8 CPU cores. Each hardware node has approx 30 VPSs on it. The Xen hypervisor (virtualization layer) equally shares the CPU cores between all VPSs, giving each a priority based on its RAM. So, a VPS with 512MB RAM has twice the CPU priority than a 256MB RAM VPS. Under normal circumstances, CPU usage is low across all of the VPSs on the node (considering there are 8 total cores) and the CPU limits are not noticed.
Overall, a VPS with more RAM has more CPU priority.
