You can access information about current CPU configuration through the vSphere Client or using the vSphere SDK.


Launch the vSphere Client and log in to a vCenter Server system.


  1. In the vSphere Client, select the host and click the Configuration tab.
  2. Select Processors.
    You can view the information about the number and type of physical processors and the number of logical processors.
    Note: In hyperthreaded systems, each hardware thread is a logical processor. For example, a dual-core processor with hyperthreading enabled has two cores and four logical processors.
  3. (Optional) You can also disable or enable hyperthreading by clicking Properties.
