I was kind of thinking that one of these columns would top out at 8. But
I guess this is telling me that it is using a lot of threads, not how many
can be processed at once.
I read the suggested articles.
One article mentioned this: Retrieve Processor Multitasking Information
(QWCRTVPR) API. However they spelled the program wrong. This made it
very hard to find.
Kind of a stupid API. So, if I get zero on the parm does that mean:
A: The system may only use the primary thread but no additional threads.
B: The system may use the maximum number of threads that the hardware
Question: No, wait, A or B?
So I guess this is telling us that "IF" we are using SMT then we're not
using 2 or 4; we're using 8. Just say 7 (primary plus 7 additional). I
think there's a long way to go to fill up this integer value. Also makes
it so some software vendor doesn't have to cross reference a table to see
how many the hardware supports (which is subject to change based on OS, TR
or PTF level).
