Is zk designed to use multi-core cpu?

Hi, I have a javaws application that is about 1gb. When using zk to create it as an extension, it takes about 15mins on my dual core cpu. From conky, cpu usage is only 50%. Any possibility to max it out to 100%?

Thank you.

1) 4MLinux uses the SMP kernel meaning that the system provides support for multiprocessing.
2) zk is a shell script, which uses the xz utility to compress and decompress files.
3) As far as I know xz defaults to using only one core.

100% CPU usage always smells like a bug to me.

On second thoughts, agreed that 100 cpu usage isn't a good idea. Thanks for the explanation.
