Hyper-Threading Speeds Linux
By Duc Vianney, Ph. D. - 2003-12-31 Page:  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Conclusion & Resources

Intel Xeon Hyper-Threading is definitely having a positive impact on Linux kernel and multithreaded applications. The speed-up from Hyper-Threading could be as high as 30% in stock kernel 2.4.19, to 51% in kernel 2.5.32 due to drastic changes in the scheduler run queue's support and Hyper-Threading awareness.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS:
The author would like to thank Intel's Sunil Saxena for invaluable information gleaned at the LinuxWorld Conference Session Performance tuning for threaded applications -- with a look at Hyper-Threading at the LinuxWorld Conference in San Francisco, August 2002.
