Q: I wish to learn : is LO designed to exploit a multi-core (i7) processor environment ? or it runs by design on single processor core only ??? (although there are 7 more available)
P: During daily work, I am manipulating large spreadsheets, w/ lot of vlookup's and other similar functions. It slows down the laptop for a long duration. I have monitored w/ System monitor : - one single core (out of 8) is loaded almost 100%, - the rest just a few percents - swap memory bank ( 4GB ) is exploited by nearly 100%
The comparison w/ MS Office Excell, on same data, same machine, same file format shows : - parallel exploitation of 8 processor core-s - faster run ( fraction of the LO )
The (wished to) work environment : - Lenovo T520 - Ubuntu 12.04, 64bit - LO 3.6.
Thnx in advance Gyorgy

AFAIK (i'm not a LO developer): No, it isn't capable to use more than one CPU core. See this overview over multi-threading development - seems to be stalled since 2009 :-| Here are some OOo forum threads on this:
