I recently discovered we were overriding this value. I think there is
some history behind this I can no longer. Regardless, I am looking to
either pull this out or adjust it based on our 16 way servers. What I'd
like to know is  - what is the default value? I recall it being a
formula based on the number of processors. Just to make this post more
interesting can you tell me why I would not want to make this equal to
or even greater than the number of processors? My process is not the
sole occupant on the machine so there no expectation of being able to
use 100% of the machine during a cycle.
