    The Materialize Machine Attributes (MATMATR) MI builtin can provide just about everything you can imagine about your processors. You can reference it with '_MATMATR1' as the procedure name. Tom

    Here is a quick somewhat correct method.  A job can only use 1 processor.  Use wrkactjob sort on usage.  If the most intense job is using something close to 25% you've got 4 processors.

    If the most intense job is using something close to 25% you’ve got 4 processors.   That should only be true on a system with four processors all dedicated to a single partition.   A basic 520 has a single processor with .20 (two-tenths) processors active. If a job uses 100%, it's only using a fifth of one processor.   I had an issue during the last half of 2011 and much of the first part of 2012 where a particular job would report as much as 450% for extended periods on a base single-partition 520. I worked with IBM for months running diagnostics and various procedures trying to pinpoint how a system with a single physical processor could consume three, four or going on five processors worth of work (and not signal a licensing problem). It seemed a possible IBM issue because it was always a particular JVM job.   But it highlights the problem of trying to work from a processor percentage outwards to number of processors.   Tom

    After reading the question again, I have a question back.   Do you want to "get" the number of processors into a program? Or do you just want to look at configuration settings to see how many processors are activated?   Tom
