Isn't it juse easier to search how many cores your cpu has?
Code:
grep cores /proc/cpuinfo| head -n1
cpu cores    : 8
 
There are all sorts of ways to get this info. Might as well as pick one and run with it.
 
By the way, the article invites you to leave your method as a comment. ;-)
 
I have....
inxi -c

Yup, there's another one. There's also lscpu | grep "per socket" which should give an accurate result.

There's a ton of ways to get this data. The article contains only a few.
 
lshw -c cpu | grep config
configuration: cores=12 enabledcores=12 threads=24

cpuinfo | grep Count
Count: 24

lscpu | grep Core
Model name: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor
BIOS Model name: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor Unknown CPU @ 3.8GHz
Core(s) per socket: 12
 
Y'all can free to add it to the article as a comment. ;-)

I'm now kinda curious as to how many possible ways you can get this information - probably excluding any GUI ways... If we include graphical applications, it's a bunch.

I just replied with a comment but my code tags don't work, and when I login to the backend it won't allow me to edit my comment.
 
Hmm... I don't think you have the rights to edit comments. Code tags are <code></code> over there. I'll take a peek at it in a moment. I'm just now really getting here for the day.
 
You now have 15 minutes to edit comments after submitting them. It's a fairly obvious feature, appearing after you submit your comment.
