 By default, <code>$ mvn test -P runAllTests</code> runs 5 tests in parallel.
 It can be increased on a developer's machine. Allowing that you can have 2

+tests in parallel per core, and you need about 2Gb of memory per test (at the
+extreme), if you have an 8 core, 24Gb box, you can have 16 tests in parallel.
+but the memory available limits it to 12 (24/2), To run all tests with 12 tests
+in parallell, do this:
+<command>mvn test -P runAllTests -Dsurefire.secondPartThreadCount=12</command>.
 To increase the speed, you can as well use a ramdisk. You will need 2Gb of memory
 to run all tests. You will also need to delete the files between two test run.
 The typical way to configure a ramdisk on Linux is:
 <programlisting>$ sudo mkdir /ram2G
 sudo mount -t tmpfs -o size=2048M tmpfs /ram2G</programlisting>
 You can then use it to run all HBase tests with the command:
-<command>mvn test -P runAllTests -Dsurefire.secondPartThreadCount=16 -Dtest.build.data.basedirectory=/ram2G</command>
+<command>mvn test -P runAllTests -Dsurefire.secondPartThreadCount=12 -Dtest.build.data.basedirectory=/ram2G</command>
