SMP kernel or not?

  • If I install pfsense using the quick installation method (no question asked), do I get an SMP or a UP kernel? How can I validate that I'm running SMP?

  • In the Web GUI, go to Diagnostics/Command and type in the following in the Execute Shell Command box

    dmesg | grep -i smp

    If the SMP kernel is installed, you'll see some resulting text.
