number of cores based on processor model

We have a task of identifying number of cores on all physical servers. We already have an inventory (CMDB) of sorts from winaudit scans. However, all the inventory states for one system is Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 3040 @ 1.86GHz (1 processor). From the model alone, can you tell how many "cores" there are?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you can look up the CPU on the manufacturer's homepage (intel), and it's specifications are listed there (2 cores for that CPU):
    LVL 16

    This Powershell script will return the number of cores and logical processors for every server in your domain running a Windows Server OS

    Import-Module ActiveDirectory
    $computers = (Get-ADComputer -Filter {Enabled -eq $True -and Operatingsystem -like "*server*"}).name
    foreach ($computer in $computers)
    Get-WmiObject -class win32_processor -ComputerName $computer -Property  "systemname","numberOfCores","NumberOfLogicalProcessors" | Select-Object -Property "systemname","numberOfCores","NumberOfLogicalProcessors"
