First of all, you should update to v28.9, there is an important improvement.

You can delete your old prime.txt and local.txt and start over, to clear out any
mistaken modifications.


If you choose to edit your existing files instead, then in your local.txt file, you should find a lines similar to:

WorkerThreads=2
ThreadsPerTest=4

If there is no WorkerThreads line, it defaults to 1.

The above is for a computer with 8 cores, where two exponents are being tested simultaneously (i.e., two "workers"), with each test using 4 cores (one main thread and three helper threads).


Note: To make any adjustment, you must first stop the program, then edit the file, then restart the program.
