On one of my server i have below config
Processor speed:2400 Mhz
Execution Technology: 10/10 cores, 20 threads
Memory Technology: 64bit capable
Internal L1 cache 320KB
Internal L2 cache 2560KB
Internal L3 cache 30720KB
In the same way i have another 3 Processors with same configuration.(Processor2,Processor3,Processor4)
I was asked below two questions plz guide me
Total Number of sockets per Node: 4 processors, 10 cores per processor so total number of sockets per node = 4*10=40 is this right answer?
Number of physical cores per Socket: ?
i have a question for myself, i see 20 threads, with hyperthreading how many cores will i get.
i am confused what is what
From a physical point of view, you have 4 processors/sockets with 10 cores each, which makes 40 physical cores in total.
However, with Hyperthreading enabled, you get 80 logical cores.
So you have 4 Sockets and 10 cores per socket so logical processors would be 4*10 = 40
If hyperthreading is enabled then you would get double logical processors = 80
Again how much your VMs see the processors depends on the hardware version of the VM and how much processors supported by VM depend upon operating system on VM.
For example windows server 2003 is limited to 4 CPUs.
