if you're using the server for pure floating point compute, don't run
more threads than you have actual cores. high concurrency server
workloads that aren't IO bound generally benefit quite a lot from using
hyperthreads to double the number of active workers. the HT on the
X5600 and such newer Xeons is quite a lot better than the old
netburst/p4 architecture where the benefits were marginal in many cases.
