FAQ: Can a remote Geoprocessing Server take advantage of multiple processors?

Question

Can a remote Geoprocessing Server take advantage of multiple processors?

Answer

Yes, a Geoprocessing Server can take advantage of multiple processors. For example, when the Geoprocessing Server receives a process request, the operating system (OS) decides which processor to use for that request. Generally, the OS will give a new job to the processor that is being used the least. You cannot control which processor is used, and a single Geoprocessing task cannot be split up among processors.

Note:
Binding a process to a CPU is not recommended for the Geoprocessing Server.
