Check if computer is using both CPU's


This might be a extremely weird question, but I read somewhere about someone who said Linux is only using one of the computers CPU's. Is this posible? And how can I check if its using one or both? Thanks.

"top" - then hit the "1" (numeric) key.

Unless stated otherwise, the "generic" Linux kernels used by main distributions should be SMP-enabled, so there should be no worry. In addition to "top", cat'ing the cpu info file under /proc/ might give answers..
