Hi !

I wonder if the R application is capable of utilizing more than one CPU. I
need to know since we run it on a SunFire 3800 with 8 750 USIII cpu:s and on
a E420R with 4 USII cpu:s and we don't feel like we get the performance we
could expect.

I've seen some old discussions claiming that it isn't.

With kind regards
