i have smp support compiled into my kernel, an still, i never see anything on 
the HT'd cpu.  i realize that most ppl believe that the HT portion of the 
technology was just a bunch of smoke blown up our butts by intel, but windows 
sure loves to bounce that extra cpu graph around a lot.  below is just a snip 
of my top window, but as far down as i can stretch my 1280x1024 screen, its 
all "cpu 0" processes, even while compiling.

last pid: 16214;  load averages:  0.75,  0.35,  0.17    up 1+00:37:34

dmesg shows that freebsd sees the other cpu...

FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs

so is the SMP portion of the technology as worthless as 'they' say?

thanks,
