Arrgghh.. Forgot. Let me VPN in...

Processor 0 on line
Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.20GHz
Speed 3200 MHZ, Family 15, Model 4, Stepping 1
Feature flags 0000641D:BFEBFBFF, CPUID: GenuineIntel
L1 cache 28K Bytes, , L2 cache: 1024K Bytes
Instruction TLB: 64 entries, Data TLB: 64 entries
Logical CPUs (Hyper-Threading) per Physical CPU: 2
Processor Initial APIC ID: 0

This is a HP ML350, 1 processor, dual core IIRC

(I'm assuming NoRM's "Hyper-Threading" reference
is a misnomer — and that it won't affect how NetWare
handles its Multi-Processor work-load.)


I think the actual text in NoRM is a misleading leftover from the time where there were no multi-core processors but there was hyperthreading. The text simply refers how many logical processors there are in one physical processor socket. A couple of years ago, that could juts have been 2 logical processors with hyperthreading. Now however it can be multiple cores, or even a combination of multiple cores and hyperthreading. So I guess for example that if you run NetWare 6.5 on a Xeon 5500 processor (in case it works), it would probably report 8 logical processors per physical processor for a quad core machine.

Yes. It has been logged as a (cosmetic) defect
