For budget constraints (can't buy new license for another 2 CPU), we are looking to split our SQL 2000 Reporting Server's 2 processors (in Hyper-Thread, so it looked like there's 4 CPU) and put the other half into the new SQL 2005 Reporting Server. I wanted to know how exactly to monitor the CPU performance on the current SQL 2000 Reporting Server with 2 processor so I can justify whether or not splitting the CPU will have a drastic effect on our current reporting server. I have gone to Performance Monitor on % Processor Time, % Priviliged Time, Processor Queue Length, Context Switches/sec. But there's no clear indication if making the sql 2000 server run on 1 CPU (hyper-thread), can support all the processess. Any help is greatly appreciated. Tnx.
