OT: To Hyperthread or NOT to Hyperthread

HI All,


A question maybe 4 the gurus.


When running a Linux server with MailScanner, SpamAssassin, Sendmail, "the
milters", razor, pyzor, dcc, bdc, clamav, etc, etc, etc. Would it be better
to have the servers hyperthreading enabled or disabled?


I have read articles where the general recommended consensus is that it
should be disabled. Has anyone actually experienced this scenario or have
some comments relating?
