My Dear R buddies,

I'm feeling ashamed that I've been running my R program on some servers for a while but do not know exactly how R is working. The servers are chained together using Sun Grid Engine. Each node has 8 quad-core CPUs. I wonder how many cores and CPUs are used by a simple single-thread R program. Thanks a lot.

Best wishes,
