I have a server with 4 Xeon CPUs and 3.75 Gb of RAM.
I have captured some packets using Ethereal, and I'm analyzing them and creating reports etc. It's a very CPU intensive task and almost crashes the machine when it runs on a computer with a single CPU.
When I run the process on this server, though, all I get is %25 utilization on the ethereal.exe process.
Is there a way to tell this process that there are 4 cpus on this server and it should use all of them?
I select the affinity option and check the boxed for all of the CPUs, but it doesn't make any difference :(
what good is 4 cpus if this will be the case?
