Hi all,

It seems as if my 'dnssec-signzone' runs on one CPU-core only, where as
I would have expected it to run on all four.


- Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS
- bind-9.7.0b1.f1.tar.gz
- Quad-core 'Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5335  @ 2.00GHz' (according to

I tried 'configure' with and without '--enable-threads', but there is no
notable difference.

I also tried 'dnssec-signzone' with and without the '-n' option. No
difference either.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thank you so much.
