VFP's mtdll only applies to COM servers. FoxWeb channels are separate processes, so threading is not an issue.

You may want to do a simple test with a vfp mtdll and look and see if it does in fact take advantage of multiple cores.  If it does, that's one possible way to take advantgae of the hardware.  If it doesn't, then you know you've hit the limits with vfp :( 
...Based on your experience, are there any FoxWeb configuration options that mitigate the VFP9 performance degradation in multiprocessor environments? Is there a way to have FoxWeb utilize the "thread safe" VFP9T.DLL in lieu of the VFP9R.DLL default (and if so, does it matter)? Are there ways to attach any given channel (or VFP thread) to a specific processor? Or, tossing the multiprocessor option, is there a trivial way in FoxWeb to dispatch the work to multiple single-channel uniprocessor VMs?
Thanks for your help,
