Is there any input on this issue?

Re: top command showing more CPUs

Are you using 11.31?. Did you enable hyperthreading?.

To check hyperthreading is enabled or not.

check the kernel value lcpu_attr. If it shows 1 then hyperthreading is enabled.

... or just send the output of

# setboot

Hope this helps!

Re: top command showing more CPUs

Hi Jose,
Even I guess it is due to HyperThreading. If you have glance installed in your hpux system, run the following to find if hyperthreading enabled or not.

#cat myscript
print GBL_CPU_MT_ENABLED

#/opt/perf/bin/glance -aos ./myscript

This will get you output "on" of HT enabled.

Re: top command showing more CPUs

Hello Team,

Thanks a lot for your support.
In fact HT is enabled in this particular vpar as part of new version of SAP installation.

Once again thanks a lot for your support.
