BL460c G6 Westmere with RedHat OS RHEL 5.4 or 5.5

Andrew had a question about support for the new higher speed Intel Westmere processors on RedHat OS:

 

*******************************************************************************************************************

Hello experts,

Please advise for Intel X5670 which is the version of rhel that will have the processor enhancement and numa support it.

5.4 or 5.5?

***************************************************************************************************************

 

Daniel provided an answer and a question:

 

**************************************************************************************************************

RHEL 5.4 supports X5670, including NUMA.   I’m not sure if NUMA is enabled by default.

 

By “processor enhancement” do you mean the new AES-NI instructions?
