Enabling hyperthreading for VMware allows a single processor core to function as two logical processors, often resulting in improved performance. If your VMware server hardware CPUs support hyperthreading you may be able to optimize FortiGate VM performance by enabling hyperthreading (sometimes called logical processor) in the server's BIOS and in VMware.
To enable hyperthreading from the vSphere web client:
- Open the Configuration tab and go to Processors > Properties.
- Turn on hyperthreading.
- Save your changes.
