Most of databases aren't build to use more than one CPU. I mean, if
you do heavy query on MYSQL, it will take one of your processors to
99% of use, for example, and the other processor will be 99.9% idle.
If you're thinking it will share the load, it will not.
But, IMHO if you have a dual 3Ghz, when you do heavy query on MySQL it
will take one of your processors to full load, but the other will be
free to the rest of the processes. So, you'll have a 3Ghz processing a
query, and other 3Ghz processor doing the rest. It's better than
heaving only one.
Hope you understand what I'm telling. hehehehhe :-)
