I successfully set up CPU mining on Hyper-V with Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS and mined some test coins.
I dedicated 4 virtual processors (from total 8) and 8Gb RAM to the VPS (my processor is Intel i7-6700K at 4GHz).
It is strange for me that the CPU load is very low - about 12% of the total virtual CPUs.
I was expecting to get 100% load and I can't explain why it is low, may be testnet difficulty is very low, I am not sure.
Do you have any ideas why CPU is not high loaded?
