When I look at /proc/cpuinfo, I see an output block for each thread (core ID increments and core count is accurate with 4 cores).  You only have 1.  That would be alarming to me.


can you be more specific? i don't get it.

do you know a solution for this issue?

Your concern is whether your processor cores are all active with DSM, and by the looks of /proc/cpuinfo, they are not.  My only thought is to ask if you are running a VM with processor restrictions?

no, is bare metal. is not virtual. On the old DSM it worked fine. my concern is the same, i don't know if it's using all 6 cores. 

as long as it is within the limit of the kernel it will be used, these limits are predefined by synologys precompiled kernel that is used with xpenology (HT counts a cpu threat so if HT is available the core count needs to be doubled - thats the reason why its 8 for 3615, the original cpu had 4 cores with HT)



in your case there is no HT, just  6 cores and thats ok for all three available loader/images

Works on baremetal install, script version: 2.2.1-r01.

Hi and Happy New Year.


Tried it but failed. Does anybody know why and how to solve it?




You must do this over SSH on your DiskStation. After unpacking tar issue the command "chmod +x ch_cpuinfo"

Hi Guys, 


I know this question has been asked elsewhere, but seeing as this tool is somewhat related im wondering if the OP noticed any possible changes that could be made to fix bare metal xpenology installs not showing the correct CPU temperature?


Its a minor inconvenience but a noticeable one since i have my servers monitored by home assistant.

Changed my CPUs and trying to rerun the script giving out following Syntax.

I removed the backup folder from root directory before attempting this.


Any advice, does this work on 6.2.3 Update 3?




And the info updates is also strange? No details it just says Undefined
2 CPUs = Correct

Threads = 8, this is incorrect as it should says 24 Threads
No information about the cores?
