I am running Stata MP (licensed for 8 processors) on a machine with four
dual-core opteron CPUs (8 cores in all). The OS is Windows Server 2003,
standard edition. Despite Microsoft's original claims, Windows task
manager only indicates 4 processors and Stata will not let me set
procs_use to more than four processors with the current setup.
Windows server 2003 standard edition only supports 4-way symmetric
multiprocessing. You need Enterprise edition for 8-way SMP support. The
following web page from Microsoft compares different editions of Windows
Server 2003. The section under "Hardware Specifications" contains the
SMP support information.
