CoreXL: SND on R80.30 Openserver 8 CPUs and 1 NIC

Hi,

I have a VM running R80.30 Openserver with 1 NIC.  We use VLANs to segregate the inside/outside zones so we only assigned 1 NIC to the VM.  I recently increased the cores to 8.  I'm running 6 firewall instances.  When checking on the processor util CPU0 is well utilized, CPU1 is under utilized and the rest are pretty evenly utilized.

Firewall instances are running on CPU2-7

The "Network-per-CPU" shows most of the SecureXL traffic is being handled by CPU0.

Is there some way to distribute the SND processing more evenly between CPU0 and CPU1 without adding another NIC?
