Zope can scale well on multi-processor machines, but you have to configure 
it correctly. You need to run multiple instances of Zope all talking to a 
common Zeo backend.

In this case you could try running up to 32 single-threaded zope instances, 
although you'll need to watch the memory consumption so depending on the 
application you might not get away with that many.
