Intel Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology

Hyper-Threading Technology (HT) enables Intel Xeon multiprocessor servers to operate as if they had twice as many processors installed.

HT Technology allows a single Central Processing Unit (CPU) to process two independent sets of instructions (or threads) at the same time.

To find out if your processor support hyperthreading, run this Linux command:

cat /proc/cpuinfo

Look under the flags category listing for “ht”.
