On a system that appears to have 32 cores with HT, I have the following

A VM that is assigned 8 vCPU

Inside that VM on RHEL, I see the following in cpuinfo

[root@rhvm1 proc]# vi cpuinfo
cpu MHz         : 2699.999
cache size      : 20480 KB
physical id     : 0
siblings        : 8
core id         : 7
cpu cores       : 8
apicid          : 7
initial apicid  : 7
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 13
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht syscall nx rdtscp lm constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts xtopology tsc_reliable nonstop_tsc aperfmperf unfair_spinlock pni pclmulqdq ssse3 cx16 sse4_1 sse4_2 popcnt aes xsave avx hypervisor lahf_lm ida arat epb xsaveopt pln pts dts
bogomips        : 5399.99
clflush size    : 64
cache_alignment : 64
address sizes   : 40 bits physical, 48 bits virtual

This seems to suggest that the machine has 8 cores, not hyper threaded
