It's set at CPU 0 (value 1) by default. Leave it as is unless you
want the single-CPU affinity to be to a different one.

Embedded is just a single SuperServer instance. The process is still
going to run multiple threads inside for GC and other stuff, as the
full Superserver does. Don't think of embedded as a "different"
engine. It's just a model of Supersever for a specific type of deployment.
