Conservative RSS Profile assigns 2 CPUs when 1 RSS Queue is chosen
I'm trying to understand how RSS works and while experimenting, I found out that when Convervative RSS Profile is used with 1 RSS Queue, Indirection Table stay the same, with two processors. Is that correct behavior?
I'm asking, because when I choose other RSS Profile (for example Closest or ClosestStatic), number of the processors in IndirectionTable always match NumberOfRecaiveQueues.
Is that mean that I have some bad version of Powershell/Windows/Drivers or is it correct??
Can anyone help with that?
I've used Set-NetAdapterRss cmdlet to set things up.
