    ESX 4.1 and Hyperthreading

      After lots of searching and reading I still cannot answer a question I have so hopefully someone can answer for me.


      We currently have 5 servers in a cluster, each with  2 x quad core processors and hyperthreading enabled and I am being asked if we can accommodate an 8 vCPU VM in the cluster. My understanding, and please correct me if i am wrong,  is that for the vm to be scheduled it would need to wait for 8 logical cpu's to be available. Does that 8 mean actual physical cores or can it be made up of logical cores also?
