I did it, as you can see in my openldap configure log:
I'm using openldap 2.4.10. slapd is only using one cpu core of my

If configured to use threads (which it should by default) and your
platform's threads aren't pure user-space, then "yes". (All the
involved components, such as bdb and openssl, must also be compiled to
have a per-thread errno, if the platform doesn't do that by default.)
But slapd still using just one core. I'm running slapd with "ldap"
user, in a CentOS 5.2, BerkeleyDB-4.6.21, vanilla kernel 126.96.36.199.
Server has 4 cpu cores.
So the compile config bits all look good for slapd using threads and that
platform has 'real' threads, so things are good from that side.
I'm doing tests with multi-master replication, the replication is
working fine. I noted it when I was doing replication with other 2
nodes, the slapd in the first master is only using one core.
So, you asked the question "is it possible slapd use more cpu cores?" when
your *real* question was "is it possible for slapd to use multiple CPU
cores when doing replication with two other nodes in a multimaster setup?"
You _do_ realize that those questions are significantly different and may
have different answers, right?
I don't know the answer to your real question. I _suspect_ that the
details of your configuration (i.e., the slapd.conf bits for the three
masters) would be useful in answering it, but I'm not familiar enough with
that sort of configuration to be sure.
