When I run top, I show CPU 0-7. When i do:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "cpu cores" | uniq
cpu cores : 4
If I grep "physical id" I have 1.
I am thinking my command is wrong and top is right. This is not a VM and it a physical server, RedHat. What am I doing wrong?
I am not sure these answer it:
Edit: Am I correct that Physical ID, if it only shows 1, then I have one physical chip in the motherboard?
Edit: It is a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5560 @ 2.80GHz but the physical id is 1, and I thought it would be 0, but there is no physical id 0 in cpuinfo.
Edit: If it matters, I am trying to figure out licensing where they do .5 the core count.
