Rickard, the -multi 4 does not really relate to 4 cpu's (though the 
documentation tells you differently). It basically spawns four processes 
of the openssl speed application (like the '-f' in hsm-speed). You might 
want to play with that value. Also, you need to use '-elapsed' as well, to 
get a better estimate.

Thanks,
