Question Lost CPU CORES

Hey all,

Code:
dmidecode | grep -i CPU
        Socket Designation: CPU 0
        Version: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU           E5530  @ 2.40GHz
        Socket Designation: CPU 1
        Version: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU           E5530  @ 2.40GHz

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i cpu
cpu family      : 6
model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU           E5530  @ 2.40GHz
cpu MHz         : 1600.000
cpu cores       : 1
cpuid level     : 11


I expected 2 cpu's with 8 cpu cores and I have only one !!!

Any idea were to look Smilie

Question: where does this assumption come from? (hardware spec, I guess?).

Thanks,

If you look at the Intel WEB

the 5530 has 4 cores and if there are 2 of them there should be 8 cores. Before I installed Linux on this box I had windows installed and there where 8 cores.

If you see Linux find 2 CPU's in the worst case there should be 2 cores but linux find still only one.
