I installed the snow package on a unix box that has multiple cores. To be able to exploit the multiple cores (on one pc) do I still need to install the rmpi package (or rpvm). Another question, if i run a bayesian simulation on the multiple core after setting them up correctly (using snow), would you think there will be a noticeable speedup gain. Thanks,


linux centos
4 dual core processors
32 gb ram
R (2.6.0)
snow 0.29
