Leif, I haven't caught up on this thread, so don't know if others have already pointed this fact out to youse: Per usual... YER ALL HOSED UP...! You stand corrected...: (Not really...;-) AFAIK, the only software that takes advantage of multiple processors is the for-cost add-on called something like DB2 for Symetric Multi-Processing. The OS will split DB queries amongst multiple CPUs for you, automagically. That's one area the *nix (and maybe PASE?) just kicks the crap out of OS/400... Makes little sense to me, because one of OS/400s greatest strengths is near-linear performance gains on multi-processors. IOW, they should be able to throw a dozen of the oldest processors they can make, and get some spectacular price/performance, AFAIK, if they took advantage of this more. (BTW, thanks for the table, as I'd been wanting to find out what a "23C4" was...:-) jt | -----Original Message----- | [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Leif Svalgaard | Sent: Thursday, December 27, 2001 11:28 AM | | From: Joe Pluta <joepluta@PlutaBrothers.com> | | > VERY cool.
