The prior part (2) of this blog provided a header and set of function that can be used to determine the logical core and logical Hyper-Thread number within the core. This determination is to be use in an optimization strategy called the Hyper-Thread Phalanx.
The term phalanx is derived from a military formation used by the ancient Greeks and Romans. The formation generally involved soldiers lining up shoulder to shoulder, shield to shield multiple rows deep. The formation would advance in unison becoming “an irresistible force.” I use the term Hyper-Thread Phalanx to refer to the Hyper-Thread siblings of a core being aligned shoulder-to-shoulder and advancing forward.
