Netware on dual-processor server - Dedicating second processor to specific tasks
Posted on 2005-03-23
I'm interested in trying to get Netware 6 to make better use of the second CPU in a dual-processor server.
Left to itself, Netware seems to use mostly CPU 0, but I recently saw an old article that mentioned the possibility of configuring Netware 5 to run the TCP/IP stack on a separate processor. It was just a brief mention, no details were provided.
My multipart question:
Is this possible or relevant with Netware 6.0? If so, how would I go about it?
Is it a good idea? Are there other things I can do to increase the utilization of the second CPU?
I'm not encountering any performance problems or anything like that, I just want to try it. :)
