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.
