A dual-board (two physical CPUs), each CPU having i.e. six cores should show as 2(12) not as 6(12) ??

No one seems to have an opinion ??

Think about this one (and I am not talking about HT aka hyperthreading):

A single-board (one physical CPU-socket aka Central Processing Unit) can have up to "n" cores (aka processors).

I.e. a single-CPU-board, meaning one CPU-socket having 4 cores (processors), is shown as 1(4) in the #CPU(cores) column. Looks OK to me.

But a dual-board ( 2 real CPU-sockets), where each CPU-socket has, let's say 6 cores, shows up in the stats under the above mentioned
column as 6(12). No joke - it does!

To me, please correct me - so that I can understand the math behind it, this means this "exclusive" board has 6 phsical CPU-sockets, each with
only 2 (two) cores!

Now that would be a board I would really like to buy!!

I am well aware of the wise-spread misuse of these terms - but please ....

Thanks for reading up to here - as a reward I wish you all a nice week.

I've read it, I agree. Just did not get around to fixing it.
