Glad to hear it's working!

The last line indicates that the threads are not being pinned to specific cores.  Usually, we recommend to pin them.  You should be able to do this by activating thorns hwloc and SystemTopology in your parameter file.

Note to others: with a change in the last few months, some of the functionality of hwloc was moved into SystemTopology, which is not automatically activated.  If you want to get automatic thread pinning, you now need to edit your parameter files to explicitly activate SystemTopology in addition to hwloc.

Erik, could SystemTopology be automatically activated somehow?
