Obtaining CPU information in NetBSD

If you need to know what CPU your are currently using then run cat on /proc/cpuinfo (just like in Linux):

# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 6
model           : 7
model name      : AMD Duron(tm) processor
stepping        : 1
cpu MHz         : 1200.14
fdiv_bug        : no
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 1
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov ...

It will show you the number of cores, manufacturer, speed etc.
