When i change the thread count to 16, only 3 cpu's are used.. (2 100%, 1 +/- 34%) the rest is near 0%.

Hmm, funny when i change is to 4 threads, 4 cpu's are used 100%.. and 12 are 0%
when i increase the thread count.. it's the story above..

Probably with that many threads, most of your CPU power ends up going on managing the threads rather than actually doing calculation?!  Just a thought.  Setting more threads than you have CPUs is generally a bad idea because the computer then has to figure out how to balance them when they conflict for resources on the same CPU.

but dukebox realy has 2*16 CPU in in 2 machines

that's why he goes so fast

Oh - I misread that post and thought you had 4 CPUs instead of 16.

I don't really know why it would be acting like that to tell the truth.  Are your CPUs arranged in four blocks of 4 for any reason?  Also, I don't know how Windows scales to use more CPUs... I thought the Win9x commands only coped with 4 max.

OK here's a suggestion: install muon 4 times into 4 separate folders, and set threads=4 for each.  That should do well.

Win9x and (IIRC) XP Home only support one CPU.


2000/XP Pro supports 2.
2000 Server Supports 4.
2000 Advanced Server Supports 8.
2000 Datacenter Server Supports up to 32.

I do not know about NT flavors.  I would imagine that it is a similar setup.


Windows 2000 scales to multiple CPUs quite well, especially compared to NT from what I've heard, I have no first-hand knowledge.

They are scaled in 1 unit of 16 cpu's running ms datacenter.  they are not scaled in any way by thread devine.
