Description YangKun 2007-03-30 04:26:10 EDT
Description of problem:

  o "dmidecode" is not available on Itanium machines, do we have any replacement
for it ?

  o "/proc/cpuinfo" does not collect enough infomation. On IA64 machines, all
detailed CPU info(e.g. the cache size) will be kept under "/proc/pal/", suggest
to collect following files in info test:
[root@dhcp-0-091 cpu0]# ls /proc/pal/cpu0/
bus_info  cache_info  frequency_info  perfmon_info  power_info  processor_info 
register_info  tr_info  version_info  vm_info
[root@dhcp-0-091 cpu0]#
