Fixed In Version: ovirt-engine-dwh- ovirt-engine-4.4.7
Doc Type: Deprecated Functionality
Doc Text:
The column name threads_per_core in the Red hat Virtualization manager Dashboard is being deprecated, and will be removed in a future release. In version the column name for threads_per_core will be changed to number_of_threads. In the Data Warehouse, the old name will be retained as an additional alias, resulting in 2 columns providing the same data: number_of_threads and threads_per_core, and threads_per_core will be removed in a future version.

Description Juan Orti 2020-11-10 11:03:46 UTC
Description of problem:
The RHV Manager dashboard does not honor the "count threads as cores" cluster option. Enabling or disabling that option does not alter the percentages of commited and allocated CPU.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use RHV 4.3.11 manager and hosts.
2. Hosts have SMT CPU and SMT is enabled.
3. Have some VMs running.
4. Check/Uncheck the "count threads as cores" option of the cluster. Verify in the dashboard the committed and allocated CPU values.

Actual results:
Committed and allocated CPU values are not affected by the "count threads as cores" option

Expected results:
The percentage calculation of the dashboard should be based on the "count threads as cores" option.

Verified in 

I checked the columns threads_per_core and number_of_threads in the host views and they match (also the host CPU topology).
Also verified that column count_threads_as_cores matches the cluster 'Count Threads As Cores' settings.
Another verification of these values has been done via Grafana dashboards in bug 1962641 comment 2.
