VMware logical processors

I have an HP Proliant server with 1 processor 4 Cores and 8 Threads. I installed VMware esxi 4.1 in this server and created 3 VM's  
1) The Domain controller which I allocated 1 vCPU
2) The Application Server which I allocated 1 vCPU as well
3) The Terminal server which I allocated 1 vCPU but I configured it to have 4 cores in cpuid.coresPerSocket. The problem here is that the terminal server runs very slow. I am confused if I allocated the vCPU correctly.  I am also confused if the 8 hyper threads = 8 logical processor = 8 vCPU's. Also, 5 users are using the TS with an application that is CPU hungry (Leap). Can someone shed light on my questions. Thanks in advance.
