You may also be interested in "Whole Machine Slots".  See here:

Another option is to modify your execute machine's configuration with:
This will force the machine to only publish a single processor.  Your job 
would need to know how to detect the correct # of CPUs and create the correct 
number of child processes or threads.  I think that the above (Whole Machine 
Slots) is probably a better choice, though.
