How to configure CPU affinity on Superserver (Linux)
Is this possible anyway, based on the character of Linux?
Following the Firebird.conf file of the Superserver version CPU affinity:
# SuperServer Engine Settings
# Which CPUs should be used (Windows Only)
# In an SMP system, sets which processors can be used by the server.
# The value is taken from a bit map in which each bit represents a CPU.
# Thus, to use only the first processor, the value is 1. To use both
# CPU 1 and CPU 2, the value is 3. To use CPU 2 and CPU 3, the value
# is 6. The default value is 1.
# Type: integer
#CpuAffinityMask = 1
So on Linux this setting can not be used?

As far as I know this option is for Windows because there was a problem with the OS.
Some addition information about that: Link
With Linux there is no such problem. It's left for kernel to decide what to do.
