first, special thanks to authors of this useful program.

and the next is that i am confused to what the number should be written when the PAL ask me how many processors being installed on the server?

i have a computer with one CPU (4 cores).

so what should i do ?

thank you

Do you know if your system has hyperthreading on? That will double the cores it thinks are there.

An easy way to find out how many to use is just fire up taskmgr and look at how many processors it displays in the performance tab.


For example I have a laptop with a i7 in it with 4 cores hyperthreaded so it shows 8. Which is what I would use if the target I am analyzing is that processor.

Make sense?

my computer has 1 CPU with 4 cores. no any hyperthreading on.

should i adjust 4 in PAL?

Yes you should set it to 4 when answering the questions.

Thanks, Kabaker55! Exactly right.

I've been considering adding an auto-detect feature into the tool to make this easier. It's on my to-do list. :-)
