Use of multi-core computers

Many tools in CLC Workbenches and Servers can make use of multi-core CPUs. This does not necessarily mean that all available CPU cores are used throughout the analysis. It means that these tools benefit from running on computers with multiple CPU cores.

Tools available differ between CLC Workbenches. In the table, the availability of these tools in different CLC Workbench Toolbox menus is indicated with an X.
