Well first, what are you expecting? You have a system with 1 processor. [It doesn't report 0 processors, it reports that it has one processor in the 0 slot (C arrays start counting from 0 versus 1).] So your aren't going to see any real increase because MPI is not going to go out to other processors. In order for MPI or other tools to make it go faster, they are going to need to have more processors to run on. I believe you are seeing the virtual go up because you have created 4 processes all running at X/sec. Now I doubt they would really perform at that long term because without additional cores/processors/etc you are only getting any "throughput" via processor acceleration tricks (they work short term but will shut down when the processor overheats etc.) > Regards, > NeonFlash > > -- Stephen J Smoogen.
