11.1 ISim - Why does ISim use both my processors when running in GUI mode?

Why does ISim use both my processors when running in GUI mode?

Solution

The reason ISim GUI uses both processors is because on one processor the engine dumps out transition data as fast as it can, while on the other processor the GUI is processing the data into a database. The dual processor approach allows for the possibility of working twice as fast as a simulator design that does both things in one process.
