At the moment, the only support that is in Firebird Super-Server(Windows
and Linux) is to be able to specify on which ONE processor you want it to
run on, instead of using an external application. Apparently, the Firebird
Classic Server(Linux) runs well in multi-processor environment. If I'm not
mistaken, the work has started for the multi-processor support for Firebird
2 Super-Server.
