Linux AS-2.1 32bit or 64???

Hi,

I have a few BL20P's and DL-380's in our environment running Red Hat AS-2.1 OS. I'm being asked by our developers to find out what Bit Version of the OS is running to the effect of 32bit or 64bit OS? Is there any way to tell or do you just need to know your hardware?

These servers are running the Intel Xeon 3.2Ghz
CPU's.

Can anyone tell me how to check this out? I tried dmesg and i didn't see anything in here that tells me?

Hi Ken Spenard ,

Perform command "uname -p" to check os bit version. Xeon 3.2Ghz is 32 bit cpu.

Hi Ken,

run uname -m

AS 2.1 does not set uname -p parameter.

The following command will tell you all it know about the cpu

cat /proc/cpuinfo

Hi Ken Spenard ,

Sorry for my mistake.
For RHEL2.1 perform command "uname -m", for RHEL3 perform command "uname -p". Command "uname -a" will appear more information include os version.
