Is parralel processing automatically done on multi-core CPU's?
I just noticed this article, http://www.howtoforge.net/fully-utilizing-your-x-core-cpu*which uses http://code.google.com/p/ppss/*for parralel processing.
So, can anyone tell me if parralel processing happens automatically on CentOS, or would I need to use this script as well? We mainly have Dual Core & Dual CPU, Dual Core (i.e. 8 cores) servers and it would be benefitial to know whether any applications on the server could automatically use all 8 cores, or whether I need todo something on the servers to get this working?
