I'm running PostgreSQL 7.4 on a quad Xeon attached to a
beefy disk array.  However, I am begining to wonder if this is
a waste of CPU power.

I think I read somewhere that PostgreSQL is NOT multi-threaded.
But, will it be able to take advantage of multiple CPUs?  Will
I have to run separate postmaster instances to get the advantage?

I'm not running a high load on that machine yet, So I can't tell
if the load is being balanced across the CPUs.  I expect that as
some of the newly launched sites grow it will require more resources
but maybe some of you could share your results of this type of
deployment setup.
