      HotSpot generates CPU description when it is started. We can see it `jdk.CPUInformation` JFR event as below:

      $ jfr print --events jdk.CPUInformation raspi4.jfr
      jdk.CPUInformation {
        startTime = 22:57:13.521
        cpu = "AArch64"
        description = "AArch64 0x41:0x0:0xd08:3, simd, crc"
        sockets = 4
        cores = 4
        hwThreads = 4

      `description` contains "AArch64", it is fixed value, we cannot guess the process was run on what machine (SoC).

      In Linux, we can use `compatible`property in device tree to guess the machine. The 'compatible' property contains a sorted list of strings starting with the exact name of the machine, followed by an optional list of boards it is compatible with sorted from most compatible to least.

      In Linux on AMD64, we can see as following, then we can guess the CPU model from it. The same should do for AArch64.

      jdk.CPUInformation {
        startTime = 17:28:03.907
        cpu = "AMD (null) (HT) SSE SSE2 SSE3 SSSE3 SSE4.1 SSE4.2 SSE4A AMD64"
        description = "Brand: AMD Ryzen 3 3300X 4-Core Processor , Vendor: AuthenticAMD
