Have y'all played with SMT8 yet? I am running all Power 8's; two 814's
and one 824. They are running multiple LPARs: IBM i 7.1-15142-TR10, IBM
i 7.2-15135-TR2, VIOS 2.2.3.4, AIX 7.1.0.0, FW810.21 (108)

I've checked a few websites and I'm having a tough time just trying to
figure out how to turn it on.

I'm also trying to figure out if different lpars may benefit more than
others, or may it actually hurt performance on any.

First, I think we can safely assume that none of these lpars are a single
user machine which only runs one batch program at a time using traditional
I/O for ERP processing.
Many support Domino and/or WAS and many of these lpars are dedicated to
just such a workload.
