     42== Speed up trace processing on a dual processor machine ==
     43On a dual processor machine you can do decompression on one CPU and the trace processing on another.  Having a buffer in between the two will decouple them and get even more cpu usage out of them.  At WAND we use the command line:
     44{{{
     45 zcat tracefile.erf.gz | bfr | ./tool erf:-
     46}}}
     47
     48Doing decompression in a seperate thread is likely to be added to some later release of libtrace.
