Where within a physical (not VM) window server could you obtain a list of processor information, i.e. number of physical processors, number of logical processors, number of cores etc. Without installing a tool. Or any lightweight tools which can do this, ideally something built into the OS though.

    With this built-in OS command you can get the Processor information:
    wmic cpu get NumberOfLogicalProcessors,NumberOfCores,MaxClockSpeed

    Open in new window

    Every line of data indicates a CPU. So by counting the lines you can get the number of CPU's.

    The following command gets all processor information, formatted as list or csv.
    wmic cpu list /format:list
    wmic cpu list /format:csv

    Open in new window

    For options:
    wmic cpu list /?

    You can also specify the wmic commands in this format:
    wmic path Win32_Processor get NumberOfLogicalProcessors,NumberOfCores,MaxClockSpeed
    wmic path Win32_Processor get /format:list
    wmic path Win32_Processor get /format:csv

    Open in new window

    There are several other format and output options with wmic.
