I need help.
Winboard → Common Settings → Max nr of CPU
Does Max nr of CPU mean the maximum number of cores or the maximum number of logical processors from the task manager? Is Max nr of CPU multiplied by the maximum number of cores from the task manager and the maximum number of logical processors? I thought it was the maximum number of cores. I'm looking for someone to tell me the exact concept.

In practice this parameter determines how many search threads the engine can maximally use. WinBoard's involvement is only to pass it to the engine with the CECP 'cores' command. The UCI2WB adapter would translate this to the setting of the Threads (or a similarly named) option for UCI engines.
