[nsd-users] Question about "server-count" config option

Hi there,

I have a question about the "server-count" option. nsd.conf(5) simply 
states that it tells NSD to "start this many NSD servers", with no 
further commentary.

Is there a situation where this value would ever be anything other than 
1? Should it equal the number of available CPU cores?
