Help me spec a VM on my Scale system

I’m wanting to run ubuntu studio in a VM on my scale system (see signature).
I’m already running plex, photoprism and a smb share which are the system priority.
How many cores / threads and how much ram should I give the VM?

That totally depends on your VM needs. For a bit of browsing 1 or 2 GB of memory and 1 core should be enough.

Just a clarification. The CPU is not a reservation, if the VM is idle you still have use of all your CPU. It’s a max thread/cpu setting.
