What does your config file look like?
In particular, what does this setting look like for you:
# Threads - four per CPU
According to his summary, he's using 48 threads. 4 per CPU/core was a good
rule of thumb with bdb/hdb. So far in playing with back-mdb, it's seemed
closer to 2 per CPU/core for me in benchmarking.
I'd generally advise testing current RE24 out, as there were some
significant issues in 2.4.40 release.
