Hi Team,
on Mac (OS-X 10.8.4) N-Body 1.18 (mt) is only using One CPU instead of 8 or 16 CPUs
(100% cpu usage in activity monitor, even task indicated with 17 thread on my Mac Pro)
So not all CPU power is used on multicore Macs

Hi,
problem solved:
By using BOINC Manager 7.1.15 CPUs usage is normal (full 8 or 16 cores/threads used)
Not sure issues comes from Milkyway application or BOINC Manager?
