[I know Bitcoin mining on a server is a losing proposition, consider this an academic question.]
I've got some old proliant rack servers and VMWare licenses and thought I'd put them to use mining. In setting up the VM I can alter cpus, ram, and network. (I'm stuck with 10k rpm HDDs.) My question is which of these is most important for optimizing mining?
My guess is CPU followed by RAM but interested in thoughts here. thanks.
