I remember back in 1992-1994 someone published a paper at Usenix (they were from Sun or Auspex, I don't remember) saying that performance went down if you ran more nfsd's than there were built-in process slots in your CPU. So, a Sparc that had 16 hardware context slots, running more than 15 nfsd's hurt performance because the CPU was thrashing.
Is there an equiv. setting for a Xeon processor?
P.S. Here is the CPU data from dmesg from the host I'm trying to tune:
CPU: Intel(R) XEON(TM) CPU 2.20GHz (2199.76-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0xf24 Stepping = 4
Hyperthreading: 2 logical CPUs
