I've read again the wiki page and as you might ask for it here's the cpuinfo

If we check the mentioned cpu_max.xml file we find :

     <model name='SandyBridge'>
       <model name='Westmere'/>
       <feature name='pclmuldq'/>
       <feature name='x2apic'/>
       <feature name='tsc-deadline'/>
       <feature name='xsave'/>
       <feature name='avx'/>
       <feature name='rdtscp'/>

So I suppose that pclmuldq is expected in the flags but it's not there. Isn't 

well, it kind of looks like a bug, since you have pclmulqdq (additional 'q' in the middle').

So I need to add my specific model at hand and trying to infer which are the 
specific flags for it?
Or maybe that needs something more to be hacked in the libvirt code... and thus 
I should wait for libvirt people to add it? Well, I mean, going to their ML and 
asking there?

Or isn't there any hope for my particular sandbridge cpu?

Thank you.

Asunto: Re: [Users] ovirt reporting wrong cpu family (2nd server)

This is another server which I have also problems with. I cannot select
SandyBridge as the cpu type.
Still oVirt 3.1 in Fedora 17.

* Tecnology : Sandy Bridge E
* CPU : Intel Xeon E5-1620
* Cores / Threads : 4 / 8
* Frecuency : 3.6GHz / 3.8GHz Turbo Boost

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1620 0 @ 3.60GHz

# rpm -qa | grep -E 'vdsm|libvirt' | sort

# virsh -r capabilities

At first, let me say that this is very weird CPU detection as according
to these flags, the processor described in here should be "Nehalem".
Could you try running 'virsh -r capabilities' on the host to check what
libvirt reports?
