[erlang-questions] Newbie observation.

Hello folks.

So my ring of 10,000 processes is processing 10,000 messages (around
the ring)... and it's taking a while. So I ask "top" to report on
what's happening.

I'm seeing 190% CPU usage... and then it hits me.  I've a dual core
and Erlang is happily using both of them.  Right?


P.S. It took just over 5 minutes on my 18 month old Mac Book Pro.  :-)
