hi guys

I am trying to find out how many processors i have in my Production server. i am using this code
Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors();

but does that give a correct count of the number of processors?

What if i have 2 boxes in a cluster and each box has one processor, will the
above code return me correct number of processors.

thanks

What hardware/software would you have that would allow clustering of processors?

No. I think you mean "nodes" when you write "boxes" in the cluster?! Am I right?
If this is the case then "Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors();" will be executed on each one of the boxes, because each box runs it's own JVM.
Btw Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors(); returns number of the cores of the processor, in your case if you have 1 processor with 4 cores, the returnd value will be "4".

well the problem is i asked my system admin how many CPUs we are using in Production environment and he says 4
but my java code  
>>Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors();

returns 1

so i am not sure why there is a mismatch.
However one thing i am pretty sure is it is a production box and it cannot have just one cpu.
so as per my system admin 4 cpus sounds about right.

Thx.

Linux OS on production box , no application servers.
Its just a single java program running in one single jvm.

cat /proc/cpuinfo

Open in new window

Would be worth trying. Java uses

sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_CONF)

Open in new window


http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/Processor-Resources.html

You might also need to look at ulimit and quota
