option

nix.settings.cores

This option defines the maximum number of concurrent tasks during one build. It affects, e.g., -j option for make. The special value 0 means that the builder should use all available CPU cores in the system. Some builds may become non-deterministic with this option; use with care! Packages will only be affected if enableParallelBuilding is set for them.
