Applies to:Siebel System Software - Version 126.96.36.199  and later
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
Version: 188.8.131.52 
Database: IBM DB2 for zOS and OS/390 v8
Application Server OS: IBM AIX 5L 5.2
Database Server OS: IBM AIX 5L 5.2
Throughout the Siebel’s “Performance Tuning Guide”, e.g. pages 178, 182, there are references to the “number_of_CPUs” on server.
Since we are running on AIX v5.3 (un-virtualized), could you please clarify whether “number_of_CPUs” represent physical or logical number of CPUs on a server, especially when values are used to set values for environment variables YIELDLOOPTIME and MALLOCMULTIHEAP. For example, an IBM p595 1.9 GHz processor reports two logical CPUs – due to its single processor dual core architecture.
