The new Xeon Servers out nowadays have a hyperthreading feature that
effectively makes your uniprocessor system look like a dual processorsystem. Kind of a virtual processor thing. As we all know, NBM
servers do not really gain anything from being on a multiprocessor
box, so I'm wondering if when I get my new NBM servers I should
disable the hyperthreading feature in the BIOS and force the OS to see

it as the Uniprocessor it actually is.

Anyone have any ideas? Experience?
