‘lscpu’ command to check ‘virtualization’ support of CPU/processor

Somebody was asking me, how to know whether the cpu support ‘virtualization’ or not.  Till now I was answering , ‘look at ‘svm or vmx’ flag in /proc/cpuinfo. For Intel, it should show ‘vmx’ and for AMD it should show ‘svm’.

But recently I have noticed a command called ‘lscpu’ which will list the specifications of a CPU. It also gives information like , whether the processor support ’64bit’ ..etc ..

Interesting command , Is n’t it ?
