So I have a dedicated server running the Xen kernel but for some reason it only shows one core instead of 4? Does that mean that my VPS that is running is only getting access to the 1 core or do they still get access to the full 4?

Just trying to get my head around the whole CPU cores etc that I can set for the VPS and what is/isn't it actually using.

if you can see only one, then that's what you get access to... –  Petter H Aug 25 '13 at 9:43
    
Would I be correct in saying that when I SSH in to the dedicated server running XEN that I am then in "Dom0" and hence the kernel bootflag saying it only allows 1vcpu which is why 1 is showing but then when I am SSH'd in to the VPS it will get the full amount of CPU's that are allocated in the SolusVM control panel? –  Tenatious Aug 25 '13 at 10:02
