On 2.6 kernels (and possibly some patched/backported 2.4 kernels) with
recent glibc versions, the API call to use would be
sched_setaffinity() ( see <sched.h> ) . I'm not aware of any existing
userland command on Linux equivalent to "pbind" of Solaris or
"mpsched"  or "runon" of other UNIX systems. It would be a pretty easy
little program to write though. You should be able to set the
processor affinity on your running Zope instance too, assuming
appropriate privledges.
