Re: Hyperthreading enabled?

I believe you need 11.31 to enable and use it.

Hyperthreading starts in 11.31?

Re: Hyperthreading enabled?

Hi,

you can use following command:
# getconf SC_HT_ENABLED

1 indicates hyperthreading is enabled
0 indicates hyperthreading is disabled

Yes, this is a v3 feature. See the white paper:

This is a Montvale processor which supports it but only on 11.31.

>Bhadresh: # getconf SC_HT_ENABLED

Doesn't seem to work on 11.23.

Re: Hyperthreading enabled?

HP-UX 11.23 cannot boot with ht switched to on. It will toggle this mode off and reboot.
To use hyperthreading you need to run 11.31.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
