As a disclaimer, I have read related question to this topic, but still a bit confused in regards to the situation I am seeing.
I am concerned about the load on one of my servers.
When running htop, It displays that I have 40 cores. MY load averages are 9.35, 9.58, 8.55.
My initial though was that this was high, but the processors installed in the server are : INTEL XEON E5-2650V3 (2.3GHZ/10-CORE/25MB/105W) FIO PROCESSOR KIT INTEL XEON E5-2650V3 (2.3GHZ/10-CORE/25MB/105W) PROCESSOR KIT
My confusion is that I am not sure why htop lists 40 cores, but I only have two 10-core processors.
If I have two 10 core processors (20 cores total), is a load of 10 reasonable?
Also, why would htop show 40 cores at the top?
