The tuning page says worker_processes should be at least the number of CPU cores on a dedicated server. In the case of hyper-threading, should this be the number of cores or the number of threads?
For example the Intel Core i7-2600 Quadcore has 4 cores and 8 threads. Would I start my worker_processes at 4 or 8?
Finally, would the same apply to Nginx worker processes?
