Cpupower frequency output

Hi all,
I have a small question about cpupower output. Way back somewhere in 2017 I’ve written a simple script to switch cpu governor from ondemand / performance and back. All it does is execute “sudo cpupower frequency-set -g performance” etc.

It always worked without problems. But lately I get the additional output that CPU cores 6-7 are offline and
no operation was performed on them. OK, sounds plausible… except I don’t have that many cores :slight_smile:
My CPU = AMD 6300FX 6-core CPU.

So where do these 2 mystery cores come from :grinning: ?
This only started happening after my latest TW upgrade on Januari 10 2023.

Yast HW info correctly lists 6 entries under CPU.
Some CLI info I found:

bart@bart (11:03:10):~ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/offline
bart@bart (11:03:14):~ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/possible
bart@bart (11:03:30):~ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/present
bart@bart (11:03:41):~ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/online

I’m probably missing something obvious, and it doesn’t really bother me much. But I’d like to understand why I get this output :slight_smile:
