hpasmcli (and other cli commands) should be considered relevant to detail HW configuration using Proliant support pack on that HW.

So that's one CPU with 4 cores, 8 threads.

These CPU's definitely have hyperthreading. So there's 4 cores with hyperthreading, not 8 individual cores.

Great, thanks.

Also, what you may want to do is this:

cat /proc/cpuinfo | egrep 'core id|cpu cores|physical id'

The reason for this is that while the CPU may have hyperthreading on it, you can always disable some CPU cores with the maxcpus=$NUM on the kernel line in grub.

This shell string will allow you to see how many physical CPU packages exist (physical ID), how many cores are active (counting core IDs in use) and how many cores each package provides (cpu cores).

Do not, however, pipe this to word count, as you will get an incorrect number unless you sort it uniquely or pass it to uniq.

I hope that makes sense.
