Detect Hyperthreading in Windows

Are there any utilities, ProLiant agents that can detect the number of physical processors and logical processors?
Command line preferrably. Rebooting is not an option.

Thanks.

Re: Detect Hyperthreading in Windows

Hi Ryan:

There is no utilities or agents;
this is part of the Hal; and the bios is the only way to enable or disable hypertheading.

if you have multi processor hal under windows
and hyperthreading is enabled in the bios

you should see multiple processors.

make sure that you have one graph per cpu in task manager checked.


best regards,

Tarek.

Re: Detect Hyperthreading in Windows

Problem is, I have hundreds of ProLiant machines (here and remote) that are all at least dual processor. I need a command line utility...
Perhaps just a chart showing which models have Pentium IV's...hmmm

HP- get scripting! ;-)

Re: Detect Hyperthreading in Windows

Hi Bryan:

Okay I got it now,

You can install Survey utility ; or Insight agents; and login to web agents will give you information on the system board and processors.

If you have installed the server o/s using smart start; then can try this:

Http://127.0.0.1:2301

this is how to login to the web agents.

if not ; can download and install survey from Smart start or Management cds.

http://www.hp.com/servers/smartstart.


Survey Utility for Windows
version 2.56.8.0 (17 Dec 03)
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/19002.html

once the survey installed; can run it with survey.exe.
and a survey.txt file will be created; open that file and will give you all the info on the server.

hope this helps.

Re: Detect Hyperthreading in Windows

Very familiar with those utils.. I did take a second look and did find there is a physical and logical listing of processors in the survey.txt file... So I should be able to parse through that to get my info...
