Connector for Sun Solaris - Multi-core Processors (psrinfo)

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are seeing too many processors (cores being reported as full processors).

What does it fix?

The format of the psrinfo command output has recently changed resulting in each core (virtual processor) to be displayed as a full CPU. This patch will group cores together under a single physical CPU.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2xxx\ on each RSM:
    • MS_HW_SunPsrinfoT1.hdf
  2. Restart to the RSM to avoid significant amounts of missing device events.
