How would I view the processor utilization for each core if I have a dual or quad core processor? top only gives me the average of all the cores.

While others may give you the details of how to get to the data used in system monitors, I'll suggest you simply install gkrellm, which is on my desktop now, continuously showing graphs for utilization of two cores.

Ok, now you got my attention!
Where do I get that gtkrellm?
I have a dual-core processor according to the specs when I bout the PC and it is shown as such by Hardinfo.
But CPU frequency scaling tool does not seem to support it.

Just in case you didn't find this. Here's a link to the version of gkrellm 2.3.2 ttuuxxx compiled for the Puppy 4.x series. This is what I'm running right now, on Boxpup 431. The appearance comes from the "trublu" skin, from the tarball downloaded from www.muhri.net. I originally posted this to show trio that his cpu frequency scaling pet was working on multi-core processors. The reported temperatures are much lower than without it. Cool
