Now bind them to cpus 1 and 3.

You got bound to 0 and 1 by default.  Also erlang is not using the hyperthreaded cpus you have available.

 Well, I tested, and it does work as long as you have 2 thread/core:
erl +sbt ts +SP 50:50Erlang/OTP 17 Klarna-g48fc1a0 [erts-6.4.1.5] [source-48fc1a0] [64-bit] [smp:2:2] [async-threads:10] [kernel-poll:false]
Eshell V6.4.1.5  (abort with ^G)1> erlang:system_info(cpu_topology).[{processor,[{core,[{thread,{logical,0}},                    {thread,{logical,2}}]},             {core,[{thread,{logical,1}},{thread,{logical,3}}]}]}]2> erlang:system_info(scheduler_bindings).{0,1}
I have 2 schedulers bound to logical cores 0 & 1, exactly as intended.

This is the right answer.

This wont bind to the specific system cores.  It will use all cores the OS allows.

You may both want to look at the +sct option for the erl executable: 
http://erlang.org/doc/man/erl.html#+sct
