I want to know if its possible and how much hash/s I could expect on a real-time OS with multi-cores.

Settings:
I'm a real-time programmer and our computers are specifically built for real-time processing with custom motherboards and multi-core Xeon processors. Some computers have up to 16 cores which can run 100% of the time without problems or questions. They run on real-time QNX or a custom Redhat Linux with the same performance as QNX.

Cooling isn't a problem.

Forget about any GPU processing.

Questions:
Is there any Linux CPU mining software?

Can the software be used via telnet/ftp/mounting from a windows PC or require a monitor for settings?

Has anyone tried mining with QNX or a RTOS?

What kind of performance would I expect from a single core of a Xeon?
I'm aware of https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison but those all run on Windows which isn't a RTOS.

Has anyone tried isolating CPU cores for mining?

Thanks.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Mining performance on a RTOS should be about the same as mining performance on standard OSes, so the comparison table should be useful.
