Eddy_openmp core question

#1

From the eddy FSL webpage

eddy_openmp: This executable has been parallelised through OpenMP, which allows eddy to use more than one core/CPU when running.

However when I run eddy_openmp within nipype I notice that not all cores are used, even though I switch on MultiProc. I am running two subjects and have 6 cores. MultiProc assigns one core per subject but does not use the remaining 4 cores.

If I run eddy_openmp in the terminal all cores are used as expected.

You’ll want to set the num_threads input to Eddy. It defaults to 1.

Thanks @effigies, that worked!
