Hi all,

I have a cluster with 6 nodes Intel Xeon processors with Hyperthreading
technology. My question is about if this technology has advantages on HPC
clustering, or deppends of the application only?.

Then i found an article here:
http://www.daemonology.net/hyperthreading-considered-harmful/ that talks about
a security problem on servers with this technology. I wannt to know your
opinions about this.

Thanks in advance
