Dual Core Processor Problems with Fedora 4?


#1

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could point me into the right direction in terms of correcting problems with Fedora Core 4 and Dual Core Pentium 4 LGA775 Processors. We use Fedora Core 4 for our Asterisk servers and we’re having an issue with Fedora not utilizing the dual core capabilities.

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Got this from the IRC channel for Asterisk:

[quote=“ender”]Asterisk is threaded IIRC, so it just runs threads. The OS takes care of assigning threads to whatever processing cores are available.

The OS takes care of the scheduling and such.[/quote]

What is leading you to believe that the instance is not leveraging the dual core? This seems like it would be more of an issue with FC4, rather than Asterisk specific.

This is really off topic.

However you can cat /proc/cpuinfo and see if both cores are there, there should be a cpu0 and cpu1.

If not find a prebuilt smp kernel for your distro or build your own enabling smp in the kernel config.
