physical server processor details

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is what you need.  You can download third party tools if you need to be more granular...
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.
