We have freeaxp installed on a hp hardware with 2 * dual core intel Xeon cpus and running Windows 2008 64 bit.
Tru64 5.1B is installed on the freeaxp instance and it is detecting only one cpu. On the windows task manager also we find only one of the four cores is being used by the freeaxp binary.
Need clarification on how to add more cores to the freeaxp instance.
The configuration utility provided for freeaxp does not seem to have any option to manipulate the cpu cores that can be allocated to the instance.
this is the same with all available Alpha emulators. They emulate EACH Alpha CPU on ONE core. There are emulators, which emulate more than one Alpha CPU, but they just use ONE core for each individual Alpha CPU emulated. The Alpha CPU emulation code is not multi-threaded (probably for perfomance reasons).
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
