Re: How to get processor type on HP

Many different ways - on Integrity systems or all systems running 11.31 use

/usr/contrib/bin/machinfo

or

use sam -> performance monitor -> system properties,

or

use stm, example output about the system entry:

...
FRU INFORMATION

Module Revision
------ --------
PA 8800 CPU Module 3.2
PA 8800 CPU Module 3.2
PA 8800 CPU Module 3.2
PA 8800 CPU Module 3.2
...

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How to get processor type on HP

Hi,
thanks for reply.

%uname -a
HP-UX vdelta B.11.11 U 9000/800 109092009 unlimited-user license

My Hp version is 11.11, so machinfo is not there, is there any command or API by which I can detect the processor type.

Thnak you, it is giving expected output

Hi,

What you need to be careful of in a virtualized world, is what various commands report is not necessarily "the truth" from a physical perspective, or from the perspective of a given application.

I think you said in your other threaf that you need to figure out the number of cores available to an application for licensing purposes.

You might also want to take a look at this technical paper which discusses how applications should programatically figure out what their environment looks like:
