multi core or not?

Hi, I've a rx4640 running 11.23. the machinfo output is listed below ..I'm finding it difficult to say exactly if I've 4 cpus or 2 dual cores ... (I've seen various similiar postings but I still don't undertand fully)

Can anyone say for sure? thanks

Richard

Re: multi core or not?

You don't have dual cores for sure.

In this cpu family all are single cores, but 1 family member is very special - 2x single core in only one slot. But this special was slower than yours. I think you have 4 single cores in 4 slots.

Please post this too:

# echo "sel dev 1;info;wait;il"|/usr/sbin/cstm

Let's see what information this gives.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: multi core or not?

Richard,

If this were dual-core the processors woould be noted as either "Itanium 2 9000 Series" (Montecito) or "Itanium 2 9100 Series" (Montvale).

As they're not, we can conclude this box has 4 single-core processors in it. By the look of it it's a Madison 9M processor with 6MB L3 cache. You can figure that out from the family (31 or hex 1f) and Model (2) info - look at a table like the one at the bottom of this page:

Re: multi core or not?

Hi, thanks for replies to date ... here's the output of the cstm command. I'm asking in particular in relation to the Oracle licensing ... I had presume 2 Dual cores hence 2 Oracle licenses ...but if 4 single Core then that impliues 4 Oracle licenses.

thanks again

Richard

Re: multi core or not?

Like Duncan says, this is the Madison9M CPU - you have 4x single cores.

In the output above you see

4x Product Name : MAD9M-16-6 ROHS


Compare also with

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itanium#Released_processors

The "special" I talked about is

processor family: 31 Intel(R) Itanium 2 Family Processors
processor model: 1 Intel(R) Itanium 2 processor

(Note: model 1 - aka "Hondo")

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: multi core or not?

thank you both for your help

Re: multi core or not?

Paul,

Depending on your discount levels with Oracle and HP, you may find it cheaper to replace the CPUs in this system with dual-core, or just replace the system completely. Those Oracle licenses aren't cheap...
