    I don't know anything about hyperthreading.

    How do I tell if my command above told me the machine under test is
    merely 4 times hyperthreaded or if the machine actually has 4 CPUs?

    If you just read the complete output of 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' from
    the example box in your OP, you should easily find out, if it's 2
    CPU with hyper-threading enabled or 4 without ht enabled.

    Good luck
