Nick:

Kudo's go to Darrell for making his client behave under a 32-bit
operating system!

This looks normal to me, and it looks as though you are utilizing
100% of your CPU cycles:

You are running 1 machine, with 2 CPUS, with 2 DESCHALL processes,
with 4 DESCHALL clients. Each client (1A, 1B, 2A, 2B) is doing
1.2MKPS. Each CPU is doing 2.4MKPS. In aggregate, this dual CPU
167 MHz box is doing 4.8MKPS.

Cheers!
