There's a thread on the -stable list about 8 cores being an issue in a very specific case. I couldn't imagine setting j to something more than 2x or 3x at the most of your available cores.

Isn't 1000 an unrealistically high value?

For the next few years maybe but with core counts going up I can
easily see a 512 or 1024 core machine by say 2015.. i.e. Moore's law
may not apply to single tasking chips any mores but it seems to be in
full force for multi-core ones... this brings me to why I tried it in
the first place I was exploring weither or not FreeBSD was ready for
this kind of core count (specifically the idea of a multitasking OS
scheduling by allocating one process per core for core counts greater
then say 64)... I am in the process of considering the design
requirements for a OS I plan to do from the ground up and like to know
the limits of current ones.
