be careful about how many processors you are using. The optimal
number of cores depends on how many particles you have. It could be,
that with few particles, the simulation is actually slower with more
cores. Do some trials, and run your simulation with less or more
cores, and see which one gives you most iterations per second. You
can control the number of cores to be used with -j switch: `yade -j3`
will use three cores.
