I'm running version freeBSD 4.1, what's the command that would tell me if CPUs are working or not, on UNIX I normally run cpuonoff -s  and would tell me.
Thanks

I'm not sure if it will work on v4.1 but on 4.8 is your run top you'll notice a column called "C" that will either show a "0" or a "1" depending on which processor a certain process is running on. This "C" column won't show up if the operating system doesn't detect multiple processors.
