I recompiled the linux kernel but I don't know if SMP has been activated and
is using both processors to full effect.
System is as follows
Dual Pentium 2 350Mhz
128MB ECC Registered SDRAM
9.1GB IBM Ultrastar U2W Hard Disk
Plextor UltraSCSI 40x CD-ROM
Netgear 310TX 100BaseT Network Card
APC Backup PRO UPS
Linux Version: Redhat Linux 5.2 with kernel 2.2.1 (will update soon to
On our HP-UX system, when running top it gives an indication of which
processes are running on which processor and the relative load on each
When ruuning top on Redhat Linux 5.2 with 2.2 kernel there seems to be no
indication as to which processes are running on which processor.
What am I doing wrong (if anything) and how can I check that SMP is working
properly. I don't want to have bought two processors for them not to being
used to their full potential
Also do processes get allocated to whichever processor has the smallest
Thanks in advance for any advice given.
