I am running 3.0-971022-SNAP (with SMP enabled kernel) on a Tyan Tomcat-3
two CPU motherboard. The program `xcpustate' shows onlu one bar!!
I tried to see if applications run faster on a dual motherboard. Compiled
gcc-184.108.40.206 under GENERIC kernel times are
1285u, 63.4s, 25:36.55 (and other numbers)
than tried the same under SMP enabled kernel and times are
164u, 1440s, 31:54.37 (and other numbers)
Looks as if dual motherboard is going slower. Does the appllication
stay on the same CPU? Is there any other bench mark? How is SMP supposed
to work? Any pointers will be appreciated.
