[R] Assigning cores

Hi all,

I'm working on a large simulation and I'm using the doParallel package to
parallelize my work. I have 20 cores on my machine and would like to
preserve some for day-to-day activities - word processing, sending emails,

I started by saving 1 core and it was clear that *everything* was so slow
as to be nearly unusable.

Any suggestions on how many cores to hold back (e.g., not to put to work on
the parallel process)?
