[parsec-users] Number of spawned threads.

Hello Krishna,

You can specify the number of threads for all PARSEC programs at the command 
line (or some other way at program start). The parsecmgmt tool allows you do 
that in a convenient way. Several programs have to be run with more threads 
than cores, the commercial workloads for example use a number of threads 
equal to the number of cores for each pipeline stage and depend on the 
scheduler to make the right decision. As a rule of thumb, tell parsecmgmt 
that you want to run with N cores and everything will be the way it should
