Hi,

rebuilding system and world with gcc-7.2.0 on a 6-core AMD CPU I have the impression that
most of the ebuilds limit parallel builds to 1, 2 or 3 threads. I'm aware it is only an
impression, I did not spend the night monitoring the process, but nevertheless every time
I checked the load was very low.

Does anyone have real-world statistics of CPU usage based on gentoo world build?
