Status of Simultaneous MultiThreading (SMTStatus)

This parameter indicates whether the AIX partition is running in multithreading mode. When multithreading is enabled the value of the parameter SMT is 1; when multithreading is disabled the value of the parameter SMT is 0.

 Simultaneous multithreading (SMT) is a technique to improve the overall efficiency of superscalar CPUs. SMT permits multiple independent thread http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_%28computer_science%29 of execution to better utilize the resources provided by modern processor architectures.

When SMT is enabled or disabled on a logical partition, the number of virtual processors gets doubled or halved respectively, and accordingly the SMP instances get created or destroyed.
