    Xeon E5440 performance issues

      Hi,

       

      We;re currently running our server on a XEON E5440. Now I know that I should disable hyperthreading.

      I'd just like to verify, as the specs seem to say that this processor does not use hyperthreading.

      Are there any other considerations for me? Should I disable certain features here? Or should it work?

       

      Thanks!

          Perhaps I should clarify. The link tells that the processor has the following options. Are any of them bad for the qlivkiew server performance?
