I want to find the no of cores available on the server. Is tehre a way to do this without 3rd party tools?

Processor      x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 3 GenuineIntel ~2793 Mhz
Processor      x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 3 GenuineIntel ~2793 Mhz

do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and go to task manager. Select the Performace tab, In CPU Usage History you should see one or more little graphs one for each processor

Task Manager gives the no of processors and I cant install any 3rd party tools.
Does anyone know the parameter in WMI to find the no of cores?

KCTS: The task manager shows the hyper threaded CPU's.
My laptop has 1 Processof and two cores and the attached is what it shows

The attached code works on my laptop (win 7 x64)  but not on the server. Aaarrrgg
SunnyC7 thanks for the code. It works on my laptop too but not on the server (win2k3 Std SP2)...
 Oh boy why is this so frustrating?
 

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
    & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colSettings = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem")
For Each objComputer in colSettings 
    Wscript.Echo "System Name: " & objComputer.Name
    Wscript.Echo "Number of Processors: " & _
        objComputer.NumberOfProcessors
Next


Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(_
    "Select * from Win32_Processor")
For Each objItem in colItems
    Wscript.Echo "No of Cores: " _
        & objItem.NumberOfCores
Next

Open in new window
