While conserver is single threaded, there is an option (compile time I
think) which sets how many consoles are handled by each conserver
process.  So multiple CPUs are used by the fact that there are probably
multiple processes handling all of the consoles.

Still, I don't think handling console output is all that CPU intensive.
