I have two Servers.
One has one processor and 6 slots occupied by Ram(set up and preconfigured by Manufacturer)
Another is on Two processors and 6 individual slots with 3 bars of ram on each, total of ( A1-A6 and B1-B6 ).
My question is although these servers came preassembled, and i have been told that the different A and B stols pertain to the different CPU's,
1.can we say that they are on NUMA?
2.How can we verify if a certain server is on NUMA? and if so how can we find out which type of NUMA it is?
3.Is NUMA configurable ?
4.Is Soft-NUMA, Interleaved-NUMA a hardware or software feature?
5.I believe we can have NUMA hardware enabled to behave as SMP.
5. Does NUMA look at the PHYSICAL Processor or the Number of Cores involved or the LOGICAL CORES due to HyperThreading?
Please help with details/BOOK REFERENCES.
