Hi,

So it would seem that (and Iâ??m not a programmer) that the openvpn
process/application needs to be multi-threaded to spawn off processes to
utilize more processors?  So along this line of thought, what about
artificially splitting the client load by running two openvpn daemons and set
each to a different UDP port bound to the same IP address and then split the
remote network in half (via IP subnet) and assign each subnet half to one of
the processes?  I have plans to test this theory?maybe next weekend.

Actually, why not just bind multiple instances to the same IP as you suggest and then have the clients load balanced on the various ports to spread the load. You dont have to change your toplogy nor have multiple client configs and it should be able to split the load this way among your different CPUs. At least, it would be interesting to see if it works in practice :)
