Hi,

I'm trying to query the total number of physical processors on 2003/2008 machines using wmi.

Problem:  Total processor is listing as total virtual processor due to Hyper Threading

1- How to get total Socket & Total Cores in W2k3 & W2k8
2 - How to find if HT is enabled or not

Should work for physical and logical processors.

Get-WMIObject Win32_ComputerSystem | Format-List Name, NumberOfProcessors, NumberOfLogicalProcessors


As for Hyperthreading, if the Logical Processor count is higher than the Cores, then HT is enabled.

Get-WMIObject Win32_Processor | Format-List Name, NumberOfLogicalProcessors, NumberOfCores

Just a note for Server 2003; you may need this patch if it doesn't report correctly.
