It still seems a little slow. Have you tried compiling a version of
bash tuned for that machine?

Depends on the workload. For example, for some of the work I do, 100%
CPU usage translates to 15-20% of cycles actually doing something useful
and the remaining 80-85% of the time the processor is stalled waiting on
memory or branching. In this case you can use all four cores at 'full
As with all performance related things - it depends on what you are
trying to do and what about that you want to measure.
