How to know the exact cache associative on processor
How to get the exact associative pattern of each cache level? For example, the cache associative of Xeon 5650 processor at different cache level. I have tried to find out that information, but I failed.
I would also recommend to use Windbg in its kernel mode as primary source of memory and CPU inspection tool.
Regarding CPU the most valuable information is contained in PCR and PCRB structures.You can dump these structures with the !pcr command
use dt nt!_KPCR [address of PCR] -b -v -r.
