A CPU is an acronym for the central processing unit. It is an essential part of a computer. The CPU sends signals that control the other part of the Linux server. You can call it as the brain of your computer. This page shows how to find out the number of CPUs on Linux using the command line.

Linux determines the number of CPUs using the lscpu command:



How do I display the number of processing units available?


You can show the number of processing units available to the current process including all installed processors:

nproc --all


Another option to obtain the number of CPUs/cores in Linux. Run the following command:



Use the cat command to see info about your CPU and system architecture dependent items, for each supported architecture a different list:

cat /proc/cpuinfo


You can use the combination of grep command and wc command as follows to print

grep processor /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l
echo "Total logical core(s): $(grep processor /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l)"
echo "Core per cpu: $(grep '^core id' /proc/cpuinfo | sort -u | wc -l)"


The output from /proc/cpuinfo can be difficult to phrase. Therefore, it is better to use the lscpu command:
