cat /proc/stat


cat /proc/cpuinfo

/proc/cpuinfo should contain 1

processor : N

line per processor.

/proc/stat will contain n cpuN lines, where n is the number of processors
in your box, I think, or no such lines [just a cpu line] on a UP box.

There's an old proverb that says just about whatever you want it to.
