bzip2smp parallelizes the bzip2 compression process to achieve a near-linear performance increase on SMP machines. On a two-processor Xeon machine, the speedup is around 180%. The tool's main purpose is to aid performing heavy-duty server backups. It can also be used on modern desktop multicore processors (such as AMD Athlon64 X2 and Intel Pentium D).
