I am in the process of buying dual-Xeon (each 4 core) server grade machine for our Android build server requirement, for my team at my work place. Could you please confirm that the Ubuntu server version that is used for Android build environment supports at least 8 processors in SMP mode. I did some reading and saw that it supports up to 8 cores without any recompilation; please confirm this.
I just want to make sure that we use the full potential of the Xeon processor while running ubuntu on it and build our applications and the SW stacks faster. Please help.
