A site we (Zest Software) made for a big customer runs on a dual-core server, with some multithreading so it seems like there are 4 processors. With one zeo client, only at most 25 percent of the processing power was used. We added a few zeo clients and saw the processor a lot more active, probably approaching 100 % when all clients are fully active. A big improvement, with no additional setup that I am aware of. So it is automagically handled, yes. -- Maurits van Rees | http://maurits.vanrees.org/ [NL] Work | http://zestsoftware.nl/ "Do not worry about your difficulties in computers, I can assure you mine are still greater." _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
