How do I view the CPU specifications for my Linode?

Linode Staff

I'm looking to view information regarding the CPU for my Linode. Where can I see this information?

There are a few commands that you can run to view the specifications for your server's CPU. Here are a few commands that you can run:

cat /proc/cpuinfo
dmidecode -t 4

Just wanted to add that nixCraft filters the output of lscpu to make it a bit more concise, which I thought was nice:

lscpu | egrep 'Model name|Socket|Thread|NUMA|CPU\(s\)'
