number of processors

Just to clarify, I was wondering whether the number of processors should be the wmi value on the system... i.e is a core2duo single proc recorded as 2 processors or 1 or including threading...4??

xeon quad core dual processor machine is has 2 processors or 8 for the PAL processor question?

I have been using the WMI value for my reports (running the following in a command prompt: wmic computersystem get numberofprocessors)

I do hope that this is not incorrect.

The number of processor is the number of logical processor. This is the same as the number of processors seen in Task Manager. The point of the variable is to check the number of System Context Switches per second to the number of logical processors and other processor related thresholds.
