We have a DL580G4 machine which is a 4 Socket Xeon, Dual Core machine with
Hyperthreading. This gives us 4 Socket, 8 CPU and 16 Logical processors /
threads in total. Looking at some of the MS documentation on hyperthreading
(Win Support for Hyper-Threading Technology) it states that Standard edition
will support the 4 Sockets.... great, but later on it also states that the
Maximum Logical Processor Limit for Std is 8. Does this mean to use all the
possible threads (16) on the machine we would have to install enterprise
edition? Thanks
