Number of processor's core used vs total number

Walid Nouh 6 years ago 0

The number of processor's cores as returned by FusionInventory is the number of used cores.

It's possible to disable some core in the bios. In this case, dmidecode return the information of the total number of cores.

One example is Oracle Database appliances, where cores may be disabled for licensing issues.

It would be interesting to a new field to store the total number of cores.
