Dual CPU Q: - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

greetings......let me share a little experience with y'all: Being a relative newbie, I liketo experiment: I got my hands on a 9 (yes!) year old Intergraph server with dual p133 cpu, dual SCSI, and a lot of goodies on-board...must've cost a fortune back then..... Anyway, I managed to gather 80 mb of parity ram (hard to find these days) clocked up to 166 mhz, threw in a handful of SCSi hd's and wanted to install WIN2K server and Mandrake 8.2 So, having lurked here awhile, I knew I had to install W2K first...CDrom won't boot..ok, so I make four install ...

    Default Dual CPU Q:

    greetings......let me share a little experience with y'all:

    Being a relative newbie, I liketo experiment: I got my hands on a 9
    (yes!) year old Intergraph server with dual p133 cpu, dual SCSI, and a
    lot of goodies on-board...must've cost a fortune back then.....
    Anyway, I managed to gather 80 mb of parity ram (hard to find these
    days) clocked up to 166 mhz, threw in a handful of SCSi hd's and wanted
    to install WIN2K server and Mandrake 8.2

    So, having lurked here awhile, I knew I had to install W2K first...CDrom
    won't boot..ok, so I make four install disks, boot up, and the machine
    freezes after the 4th disk..try again, same story, try 4 times, throw
    the disks out of the window (!) - the server is too heavy to throw...who
    needs windows anyway?

    So, boot the Mandrake boot disk, start installing.....no problems at
    all...not even when I found I'd put an old ISA video card into the
    machine that couldn't display enough colours....so I throw in a S3
    virge, run xconfig, and voila! up and runnning.

    I am sooooo tired of M$

    so what, may you ask, is my problem ? none really, I run Linux :-)

    But is there a small display thingy, like task manager, that can let me
    see the workload of the 2 cpu's ? See how they're both performing

    thanks for your time
    sincerely

    in a shell u may use "top", under X you have various options:
    gkrellm, ktop, ksysguard, gtop to name but a few.

    good luck, armin
