Maximum number of CPUs (2-1024) found in arch/ia64/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_NR_CPUS:

Help text

You should set this to the number of CPUs in your system, but keep in mind that a kernel compiled for, e.g., 2 CPUs will boot but only use 2 CPUs on a >2 CPU system. Setting this to a value larger than 64 will cause the use of a CPU mask array, causing a small performance hit.

This allows you to specify the maximum number of CPUs which this kernel will support. The maximum supported value is 255 and the minimum value which makes sense is 2.

This is purely to save memory - each supported CPU adds approximately eight kilobytes to the kernel image.

The configuration item CONFIG_NR_CPUS:

Help text

This allows you to specify the maximum number of CPUs which this kernel will support. Current maximum is 255 CPUs due to APIC addressing limits. Less depending on the hardware.

This allows you to specify the maximum number of CPUs which this kernel will support. The maximum supported value is 32 for 32-bit kernel and 64 for 64-bit kernels; the minimum value which makes sense is 1 for Qemu (useful only for kernel debugging purposes) and 2 for all others.

This is purely to save memory - each supported CPU adds approximately eight kilobytes to the kernel image. For best performance should round up your number of processors to the next power of two.

Maximum number of tiles (2-255) found in arch/tile/Kconfig

Building with 64 is the recommended value, but a slightly smaller kernel memory footprint results from using a smaller value on chips with fewer tiles.
