does my VM have one core or 6?


I am new to RHEL. I've allocated a Rackspace Cloud Server -- a virtual machine in the rackspace cloud -- which is running RHREL 6.3. When I check the cpuinfo, it reports an Opteron 4170 HE -- a 6-core chip I believe -- but the output suggests there is only one core:

Code:
[root@image-grabber ImageDaemon]# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor	: 0
vendor_id	: AuthenticAMD
cpu family	: 16
model		: 8
model name	: AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 4170 HE
stepping	: 1
cpu MHz		: 2100.064
cache size	: 512 KB
fpu		: yes
fpu_exception	: yes
cpuid level	: 5
wp		: yes
flags		: fpu de tsc msr pae cx8 cmov pat clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ht syscall nx mmxext fxsr_opt lm 3dnowext 3dnow up rep_good unfair_spinlock pni cx16 popcnt hypervisor lahf_lm cmp_legacy extapic cr8_legacy abm sse4a misalignsse 3dnowprefetch
bogomips	: 4200.12
TLB size	: 1024 4K pages
clflush size	: 64
cache_alignment	: 64
address sizes	: 48 bits physical, 48 bits virtual
My Ubuntu machines always list one proc for each available core. Is RHEL different in this respect?

The above output shows one processor/cpu. (/proc/cpuinfo is the same on all linux distro's).

You mention this being a VM; Did you (or the provider) allocate one core?

Thanks for your response. I wasn't aware that you could allocate cores to a VM and am kind of miffed that Rackspace may have allocated fewer cores to our new managed virtual machine than were allocated to our old one.

I'm guessing that this is probably an issue to take up with tech support at Rackspace?

I have learned that things have changed a bit at Rackspace lately and that my virtual machine was only allocated one core. This is a bummer for me but makes complete sense for Rackspace.
