Under top it tells me that "j" is an unknown command.  However, for what its worth, I
was monitoring constantly with htop the CPU/RAM usage on a separate machine over ssh
while running the TuxMath tests.  Htop shows all processors by default, and as the
instances of TuxMath increased, processor usage climbed on all 8 cores.  When the system
was max'ed out all 8 cores shows 100% usage.  So I assume that TuxMath was at least
starting different instances on each core, but I did not know how to look at the
individual TuxMath processes and determine which core they were running on.  I also
don't know if TuxMath is capable of distributing the load of a single process over
multiple cores.  Does that make sense?
