memtest uses only 1 CPU, so it doesn't care how many more are installed. You could have 4096 CPUs, like the largest IBM mainframes, and memtest will still use only 1 of them. Note that all memory is accessible from all CPUs, even on a NUMA system. This is why memtest does not need to use multiple CPUs. -- Regards, Dave [RLU #314465] *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* dwnoon@××××××××.com (David W Noon) *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
