We encounterer a lot of problems when we want to list the number of Physical CPU of our machines.
My search is based on these fields : Inventory > Processor > « Processor Count » and Inventory > Processor > Features > Cores per Package
I've notice that there's a lot of error when Hyper Threading is activated.
For Example :
Os : Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Enterprise Edition (full installation), 64-bit
Processor : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5630 @ 2.53GHz
Processor Count value : 16
Cores per Package : 16
Hyper-Threading : Yes
Get-WmiObject win32_computersystem | select NumberOfProcessors : 2 ( This is the good value )
This error is present on a lot of our server.
Could you tell me why the processor count has this value and where can I find the true value of the number of physical CPU ?
