    Question: HyperThread and dual cpu

    Hello, everyone,

    Is there anyway I can tell there's two cpu on my linux box or it's just a HyperThread cpu ? I saw two cpus when 'top' on my linux box, but I am not sure it's physically two cpu or just a hyperthread cpu makes linux think it's dual cpu ?

    thanks.

    monster9,

    Try the following: cat /proc/cpuinfo
    via SSH - if it's true dual core it will say Xeon, if not it's just hyperthreading.

    yes, HT does appear as dual cpus, do you have WHM? check the server info part, that should you what cpu you've got.

    Hi HP-David,

    it said "Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz" in cpuinfo, so it's just a hyperthread one, right ?

    Thanks.
