Hyperthreading in BladeServer

Does the BladeServer BL460c or BL685c support hyperthreading, if yes where can it be turned off.

Thanks,

BL685c uses AMD Opteron processors which never have had HyperThreading.

BL460c features Intel Xeon 5000 series processors which are dual or quad core and do not have HyperThreading.

Re: Hyperthreading in BladeServer

The 50xx Xeons supposedly do support hyperthreading, the 51xx don't. The BL460c can slot a couple 50xx models, but I don't know if the machine's chipset implements HTT support. Intel's web site details the chips by model.
