ex1) use 4 parallel threads

$ xrun -A t=4:c=4 mentat

ex2) use 4 parallel threads and 10G memory

$ xrun -A t=4:c=4:m=10G mentat
  1. Also in the GUI window, before running a job, specify the number of threads.

[Right click your job]->[Run]->[Solver/Parallelization]->[Multiple Threads(two places)] (type "4" to specify 4 parallel)
