Exactly - If you only have 5 CPUs you can only ever have 5 threads
actively run on CPUs at the same time. Perhaps a few more to handle
disk I/O, one if you use Kernel Asyncchronous I/O and a few to handle
network actively, Informix RBBMS recommond one per 200-300 users i.e.
clients.

Why have more??
