Does Schrödinger software run on multiple cores?

Schrödinger's computationally-intensive products (e.g., Glide, Jaguar) are capable of using multiple cores or processors. On all supported platforms, this is done by distributing multi-structure jobs over the cores as separate subjobs. Parallel execution of a single task with OpenMPI is supported on Linux for Jaguar, and threaded execution with OpenMP is supported on Linux for Jaguar and Prime.

The Maestro process itself is single-threaded, so there is no performance advantage to having Maestro itself on a multi-CPU machine. However if you are running jobs locally as well as running Maestro, a multi-CPU machine will result in a performance improvement.
