If you start several pigz processes, the kernel only sees processes starting a lot of threads, and processes only see a given number of cores. There is no interface that allows a process to specify how to start more threads, giving the kernel the opportunity to start them as it sees fit given the available number of cores. -- .''`. : :' : We are debian.org.
