    I have a dual PII 400 Zeon server that is showing up as a single processor machine in WHM. I'm running the newest ver. of whm/cpanel. I don't think it has always shown the incorrect information... I think before this update it was showing both processors.

    Has anyone seen this? Any clue why it would be happening? If the 2nd proc is not showing in WHM is it not being utilized?

    Thanks...

    Could be that your kernel doesn't have SMP support compiled in.

    I have a FreeBSD server with dual Xeon processors as well (with SMP compiled into the kernal) and they don't show up correctly in WHM (latest version). Under Server Information/Processor Info it just shows "Processor #4 Name: Pentium 4". Then under Service Status it shows "Server Load 8.04 (4 cpus) ". I'm not sure why it seems to think I have 4 CPUs when I only have 2.

    Newer Xeons will show as 2 processors rather than 1 because of their hyper-threading technology. Basically splits the processor in two.
