Hyperthreading in linux
Can any body please tell me how to know in HyperThreading is enabled in linux or not.also if it is notenabled then is there any command in linux through which I can enable hyper threading without having to shutdown and going into BIOS if Hyper threading is present
thank you all for your replies in advace
HT can only be enabled/disabled in BIOS, but you then need to use an SMP kernel to see any benefit. In practice, I find that there is little difference and I have had some stability problems with graphics drivers which seem to be related to HT so I have gone back to using a standard single processor kernel anyway.
