Does Linux 6.0 setup detect multiple CPU systems?

Does Linux 6.0 setup detect multiple CPU systems?

Post by James D. Murra » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



Greetings:

I have just installed RedHat Linux 6.0 on a dual Pentium Pro system
(200 MHz PPro, Intel PR440FX motherboard, 128Mb RAM, 4Gb HD)
and it seems to be working perfectly.  Is there any additional setup
steps that I need to perform manually to have Linux use SMP on my
system, or does the install/setup program take care of everything?

And are there any Linux utilites that give information on SMP system
inventory and performance?

1. High system CPU% in dual CPU System

I'm experiencing very high system CPU% indications on my new dual
Pentium III machine (SuSE Linux 7.1, Kernel 2.4.4-SMP):

...

After the initial Installation everything was fine - it must be
caused by some additonal package, but I have no clue.

What can I do to find out what the CPUs are doing during "system" time?
