I've read that I should use 2x the number of CPU available from some documentation while others suggest using between 1 and the number of CPU.

I realize there is no hard answer here but I'm curious what the advised best practices are. Especially with such a variation in advice.

    $\begingroup$ Could you edit and show where is the conflict? The 2x should be due to the hyperthreading. $\endgroup$ – kelalaka Oct 22 '20 at 22:32
  • $\begingroup$ @kelalaka my apologizes, the conflict is in the information I've read. $\endgroup$ – Chance Oct 22 '20 at 22:34
  • $\begingroup$ @kelalaka that actually clears it up for me though, thanks. go reports num CPU with hyperthreading factored in. Glad I asked or I would have been doubling over my potential capacity :) $\endgroup$ – Chance Oct 22 '20 at 22:37
