Try the following.

In grub.conf change/add the line with this param

maxcpus=number_of_cpus

So if you want one cpu only you will write

maxcpus=1

and so on....

Hello,
In order to see the no. of processors or details of processors, you can try:

bash# cat /proc/cpuinfo

To see physical processors:
bash# grep 'physical id' /proc/cpuinfo | sort | uniq
physical id     : 0
physical id     : 3

To see virtual processors
bash# grep "^processor" /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
processor       : 1
processor       : 2
processor       : 3

In order to disable or use just 1 CPU, you may need to add or change the following line in grub.conf:
maxcpus=1
