Please note that it's the behaviour/architecture of Delphix that it will use the whole 8 vCPU its given. If you would check the Delphix best practices you would see that dedicated 8 vCPU and 128GB ram is strongly recommened.
For the performance I can assure you that you will be amazed when you see how performant Delphix gonna behave.
Please follow the best practices and don't worry too much. If possible provide Delphix its own VMWare. I once had a customer run Delphix on 10 year old IBM server with only 128GB ram and it provided miracles over there (then the put Delphix into a brand new server).

Hello,Regarding the question
"will onboard Performance Analytics be able to present monitoring details in a similar way?"No; as an appliance, the performance analytics does not explicitly expose the details for operating system processes used to service IO or provide virtualization job services. We will expose general CPU usage, and that CPU utilization will be directly affected by IO demands on the Engine.I hope this addresses your concerns.
