I just wanted to report that, as expected, the suggestion of using options(mc.cores=) to increase the number of cores did work on Linux.

Hi Wade, As Dan mentioned, that's most likely the cost. Other than that, it would be able to use however many cores you have on the machine when multicore set TRUE. Thanks Dan.

Trying it on both windows and Linux machines, I did not observe multiple cores being used until I first called library(parallel) before running the code below. Also, it appears that only 2 cores were being used on the Linux machine, and only 1 on the windows, even though detectCores() indicated 32 cores on the Linux and 8 on the windows. >> >> Are there any additional parameters that I need to set to increase the number of cores being used? >> > > I don't know about RIPSeeker in particular but it seems that it's > using parallel::mclapply under the hood, so looking at ?mclapply You > can see that mc.cores defaults to: > > mc.cores = getOption("mc.cores", 2L) > > Therefore you could set it as follows: > > options(mc.cores=detectCores()) > > See if that gives you different results in linux. > > In windows, mclapply will only work if mc.cores is set to 1.
