Should we have Hyper-threading enabled on AMPS servers?

We recommend always using hyper-threading. From our tests and customer feedback, it turns out that typical systems (ones combining network, storage, compute -- not micro-benchmarks) benefit from the extra scheduling units.

If you discover a different result, please let us know so we can characterize your app behavior and refine our advice accordingly.
