How to find the number of physical CPUs in Linux

With multicore CPUs it’s easy for newbies to get confused when faced with questions like;

1. How many physical CPUs does the server have?

2. How many cores on each CPU? Duo/Quad

In Linux it’s actually quite easy to get this info.

You could go through the /var/log/dmesg file or the /proc/cpuinfo file. For this tutorial we’ll look at the /proc/cpuinfo file.

Physical CPU count?

Run “cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “physical id” | sort | uniq | wc -l”.

[root@bender ~]# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “physical id” | sort | uniq | wc -l

How many cores?

Runcat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “cpu cores” | uniq”.

[root@kmigb000 ~]# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “cpu cores” | uniq
cpu cores       : 2

2 mean that each physical CPU has 2 cores on it. If cpu cores was 1 then the CPU’s single core.

How many virtual processors?

Run “cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “^processor””

[root@bender ~]# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “^processor”
processor       : 0
processor       : 1
processor       : 2
processor       : 3

That’s about right, 2 physical CPUs x 2 cores each = 4 virtual processeors.

However, it’s a bit different for HT (Hyper-Threading). If you get cpu core = 1 but the virtual processors = 2 then the CPU’s running HT. HT will only work with the SMP kernel.

Google’s got a new favicon

Google’s rolled out a new favicon. You like it?


It’s basicly a white “g” within a google colored canvas. Standing out from the crowd is the idea behind the white “g”.

The new design was inspired by user submissions, same as their previous favicon release back in June. The winning design this time came from André Resende, a computer science undergraduate student at the University of Campinas in Brazil.


A quick look at Google’s favicon history.
