Rest API, extend the computer_hardware association to get the physical information of the machines

Extend the actual computer_hardware : for all machines, extract the number of CPUs, cores and threads.


Currently available columns in this association do not allow to recover this data. Depending on whether the machine is physical or virtual and depending on the virtual technology, no rule match the real information.

For information, currently available columns are :

Future columns, for exemple :
processors_count (number of installed CPU)
cores_per_processor (number of cores per CPU) or cores_count (total number of processor)
threads_per_core (number of threads per core) or threads_count (total number of threads)
