Hi Experts,

I'm trying to identify number of cores on Solaris box by using "kstat -p cpu_info" command.

Approach is based on counting different "core_id" per "chip_id" in output

However now I have a machine where "core_id" is completely missed in the output.

"uname -a" says it is SunOs 5.9

Do you know the reason "core_id" is not present in output?
Are there other reliable ways to calculate core per physical processor numbers?
