Re: cpuinfo

Type "machinfo" command, when you see "Itanium 2 9100 series processor" then this is "montvale".

Re: cpuinfo

...and conversly the Montecito CPU's will report as 9000 series:


# machinfo
CPU info:
  4 Intel(R) Itanium 2 9000 series processors (1.4 GHz, 12 MB)
          400 MT/s bus, CPU version A2/B0'
          8 logical processors (2 per socket)

Also, from outside the OS you can use the MP's DF command to display CPU information.


For example:

MP:CM> DF, S, X (enter CPU slot)


Look for the FRU Name entry.  THe following shows the above Montecito CPU.

    FRU Name                       : MONT_B0'


Montvale CPU's are shown as MTV_xx (or similar).
