Shalom,

Hyperthreading on recent DL380's is enabled by default in the BIOS.

Bascially one regular core chip appears to the system as two. This enables you to use the smpt kernel and obtain a 60% performance boost.

Linux will recognize this as a dual cpu system. It can be used with SG, Oracle or Apache. I'm doing this on several servers now.

Re: HyperThreading/Linux

About SMP kernel ... is it installed by default on these platform if hyperthreading is enabled or do you have to enable it?

If hyperthreading was enabled during installation, installer should install smp kernel.
