I'm running an application which, for now, uses the bakery algorithm for syncronizing
n processes, but with this method I do a lot of busy waiting on my CPU, in fact as you can see from the title, I have a load avg of
10, etc.. depending on how many processes I decide to fork.
Is it dangerous for my PC to have such a load? Could I damage the computer by running this app for 1 minute straight?
EDIT: I have 4 cores.
