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.
