    very useful article, Ember, many thanks. Just an FYI, but for your knowledge, sort has a “-u” switch you can use to avoid piping through “uniq”, and you can avoid ‘cat’ altogether, i.e.:

    # grep ‘^p.* id’ /proc/cpuinfo | sort -u | wc -l

    …as opposed to what is listed:

    # cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “physical id” | sort | uniq | wc -l

    Just a silly point on my part not at all germane to the PVU topic. Thanks for your time on this, I know it will coming in handy for me VERY soon. 🙂

    Thanks Ember for the valuable post and detailed information.
    I have a suggestion
    I’m not familiar with PVU, I didn’t know what it stands for till the end of the article (screenshot from IBM’s website). so I suggest a small quick definition of the term at the beginning of the post and/or a link for more detail about PVU.
    Thank you
