Unlike Linux, FreeBSD shows only process and kernel thread
information in procfs.

The equivalent interface for seeing/changing system options
is sysctl. Try "sysctl hw | less".

For example:
root:0:~# sysctl -d hw.ncpu
hw.ncpu: Number of active CPUs
root:0:~# sysctl hw.ncpu
hw.ncpu: 1

It's better with descriptions, isn't it?

HTH, Nikos
