Gazebo uses exactly half of the cpu

Hi, I'm using gazebo 9 (the version that comes with ros melodic) in combination with ros. I'm simply loading a ground plane together with some hexapod models.

I'm wondering why gazebo generates a cpu load of exactly half the maximum possible load.

I'd expect it to use at least one core at full load but instead it uses all 4 (or 6 cores on another computer) at just half the maximum load.

Perhaps someone could give me a hint if this is intended behaviour or if I misconfigurated something?

Thanks in advance

Its basically the same on my system (depending on the other programs i'm using). Guess that's the multi threading used by gazebo.
