You have a p5 machine running AIX 5.3 which therefore supports
Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), which uses additional registers on
the chip to make a single CPU look like two to the OS. Understanding the
performance you're getting needs a little more understanding than in a
non-SMT environment but it's worth it - for about 10% more transistors
you can get up to 30% better performance.
FOr further information, go to http://www.redbooks.ibm.com and look at
"AIX 5L Differences Guide Version 5.3 Edition" - in particular the
chapter on Performance Monitoring.
