Openvpn can only use one CPU?

Post by khaldrogo » Tue Mar 30, 2021 3:53 am

Hello everyone,

I have two questions about OpenVPN. Since Openvpn can only use one CPU, I read that if you have installed several VPN servers on one computer, the load is distributed among the available processors.
Is that correct?

Many thanks for your help.

Best wishes
