Some analysis routines do use multiple threads, however most of those are VMD built-ins. Volmap is a plugin, and looking briefly at the source, I don't think its mult-threaded.

I was told VMD can be used on a node with multiple CPUs, is this true? What about VMD's plugins though, such as Volmap? Can VMD and plugins use multiple CPUs and, thus, be able to use more RAM when selecting memory-per-cpu in my submit script?
