More dmesg pr0n: NetBDS/Xen with 128 (virtual) CPUs
There was discussion about raising the number of
CPU(core)s supported by NetBSD the other day,
as the current limit of 32 isn't the sky any more
in 2012. In the process, Xen-hacker Manuel Bouyer
suggested using booting NetBSD ins a Xen DomU,
as you can assign up to 128 (virtual) cores to
Here's the dmesg output,
and I'm sure this is a lot faster than
simulating 128 CPUs in qemu.
So, how to go beyone 128 CPUs for testing?
Anyone played with Qemu recently, or even have some decent
hardware at hand? If so, be sure to post dmesg output
(and CC: me)!
