RE: My new DL360 G4P just arrived ...

Dual core means two processors on one physical chip.

If you have one physical dual-core processor like the Intel Xeon (or AMD
Athlon) in your box it will appear as two CPUs in "systat" for example. If
you have two physical dual-core processors in your DL running "systat" will
show 4 x CPUs.

I think with the DL360 you can have up to two dual core prcoessors - e.g.
two physical Xeon processors.

I think what you have ordered is an single processor dual-core.

Subject: My new DL360 G4P just arrived ... 

'k, I'm a bit confused, since I didn't quite get what I was looking for, 
but it was what I ordered *sigh*  And, in fact, might actually be what I 
want without realizing it ...

basically, I wanted a Dual Xeon server ... got a Single one ... looking at 
the HP web site, though, I see:

"Powerful HP ProLiant DL360 G4p is now available Dual-core 2.8GHz Intel 
Xeon processors that offer 22MB L2 cache and 64-bit support."

Does this mean that my CPUs *are* Dual-Core, or just that I can order them 
that way?
