This post is the sixth post about Microsoft SQL Server R Services, and the fifth post that drills down into the internal of how it works. In Internals - III and Internals - IV, we looked at how the launchpad service creates RTerm processes when we execute an external script.

The Internals - IV post came about due to an email from Bob Albright (@bob_albright), pointing me to some resources (a blog-post) regarding the processes the launchpad service creates.

In his email Bob also, kindly enough, attached some code. The code highlighted some behavior when creating the RTerm processes, especially around parallelism. In this blog-post we'll follow up on that and look into the effect parallelism has on process creation.
