Linux-How to conferm 64bit/32bit capability of CPU

How many CPU in the system :

commands : cat /proc/cpuinfo

 
[root@server ~]# cat /proc/cpuinfo

[root@server ~]#

From the example above there is 4 processor in the system [ processor 0 …. processor 3]

also :

short cut : cat /proc/cpuinfo  | grep processor
processor       : 0
processor       : 1
processor       : 2
processor       : 3


How to find out if processors are 64bit or 32 bit

From the out put cat /proc/cpuinfo, look at the flags column, if there is a word call lm , that means its
a 64bit processor.

Short cut commands :
grep flags /proc/cpuinfo

output :

[root@server ~]# grep flags /proc/cpuinfo
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe lm constant_tsc pni monitor ds_cpl est cid xtpr
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe lm constant_tsc pni monitor ds_cpl est cid xtpr
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe lm constant_tsc pni monitor ds_cpl est cid xtpr
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe lm constant_tsc pni monitor ds_cpl est cid xtpr

From the output above, all four processors has lm word, which means its 64 bit processors
if you do not see lm word, then its 32 bit processor.
