ATA Gateway - Hyper-Threading "must" be disabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was hoping someone could provide some clarification around the ATA Capacity Planning advise to disable hyper-threading on ATA Gateways? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/advanced-threat-analytics/plan-design/ata-capacity-planning

     

    The ATA Lightweight Gateway and ATA Centre make reference to counting physical cores and not hyper-threaded cores, but the ATA Gateway states that HT should be disabled.

     

    How will this affect an ATA Gateway? Is it a statement based on performance? Or are there adverse affects to the correct function of the ATA environment?

    Thanks

  • I've had a response that .NET Framework (which ATA is written on) has some performance issues with having HT enabled for many cores.

    If anyone has any personal experience with this I would be keen to hear from them.
