To display processor information, log in to your NAS with telnet or SSH and type the following:

cat < /proc/cpuinfo

This will display something like this (in the case of a turbo-slug):

# cat < /proc/cpuinfo

The line called BogoMIPS indicates how fast your slug is. A turbo slug has about 266, a normal slug 133.

An explanation of BogoMips can be found in the Wikipedia.
