One more way to count CPUs in Linux

Here is one more way to find out how many CPUs are used by Linux:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “^vendor_id” | wc -l

As for me I use this way to make sure that SMP kernel should be installed.

You’re welcome to suggest your ways of doing the same in comments. Thank you in advance!
