Strange CPU Usage on dl740g1

Hey I have a dl740g1 with 8CPUs (Xeon)

It seems only every 2th CPU is used??

ie. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15 (80% load)

the threads are used 25% or so

I run Windows2003 SP1, SQL Server 2000 SP3.

I have 2 matching servers, and both have symptome

Klaus,
From attached file I see that HP management agents show only physical CPU's and windows task manager show each physical CPU as two CPU because hyperthreading.
It is normal.
There are two virtual processor devices per physical processor if CPU support hyperthreading and hyperthreading is enabled.
