Most of the times, it stays at 30-50% while the simulation is pathfinding slowly.
How do I better utilize the CPU? Using Intel Library maybe?
Thanks

What does your profiling say? Presumably you've got 2 or 4 physical cores. Are you using all of them?

Hmmm ...haven't tried profiling yet, I am using all 4 cores... not using multi-threaded build But the output pane is reporting that it is creating quite a handful of threads... Thanks

What's meant by a "multithreaded build" and if you're not doing one, how can you be using all 4 cores?

If you're on OS X Lion (maybe other versions too), as far as I can tell the system seems to reserve a little bit of horsepower for the sake of keeping the system responsive.
