"Adam Horner"n:http://www.salmagundi.org.uk/ showed me how to check, on a linux system, information about the CPU make and model on the command line:

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

I write it down so I don't forget. Note that this is on the command line, i.e. when you don't even have a graphical interface.

Running this on the very server I serve these pages:

peterbe@compaqpete:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 8
model name      : Celeron (Coppermine)
stepping        : 6
cpu MHz         : 699.106
cache size      : 128 KB
fdiv_bug        : no
hlt_bug         : no
f00f_bug        : no
coma_bug        : no
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 2
wp              : yes

sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse
bogomips        : 1392.64

Not very impressive is it. A 700Mhz Celeron. At least it's possible to run Zope, Squid and Apache on it.
