SMP kernel?


I am in verse to perform TCP Traffic Tests and need to know if guest OS has SMP kernel support. How can we know if guest OS has SMP kernel support?

So you just want to know if the kernel is compiled with SMP support? If so, "uname -a" should contain the word SMP

Or do you want to check that the guest itself has access to multiple cores/processors? If so you can "cat /etc/cpuinfo"
