advantages/disadvantages compared to what?

in general...the more processors the more info the server is going to be able to process, multiple cores add to that mix since each core is in essence another processor.... depending on your budget and needs the fastest processor(s) and the highest amount of ram are going to give you the highest performance

the only downsides to multiple processors/cores is related to software limitations....MOST software packages (and all microsoft OS's ) are capable of handling multiple procs/cores.....but some applications aren't...so they'll just use one proc/core exclusively and not take advantage of the added power...the only other downside is that more procs use more power and create more heat...but servers are generally configured to take care of both of these issues
