I just purchase a new machine with guidance from Pini for building MPT's.

It runs extremely fast. Intel I7 Quad core.
 
The MPT build will leverage all 8 cores.
However, the pyramid build process takes a long time and only leverages one core.
Is there any way to speed up this process? Leverage the other cores?
 
I am not currently including source in pyramid build to save  some time.
 
Thanks for any advice.

Hi Jared

Are you sure you are using the right version of TerraBulder to do so ?
I mean you need the Multiprocessor Edition of TerraBuilder, launch the MPT creation with the following menu item: "Create Mpt over network", then add fusers (calculation agents) on your own computer (and perhaps on others through the network).

I hope this helps.

Jared,

Pyramid MPU (next-generation) creation will turn multi-core in the next version of TerraBuilder (v6).

Meanwhile, if you have many MPUs that need to be created, you could split them between multiple TB instances running on your computer and then start the MPU creation at the simultaneously. After that, you can load all the processed resulting MPU into the unifying project.

Hope this helps.
