Running Augustus training with several CPUs through BUSCO

I am training Augustus through BUSCO and I would like to reduce the running time as much as possible.

In fact, I specified to BUSCO to use 15 CPUs and it seems that BUSCO executed Augustus taking this parameter into account: --cpus=15 [...]

However, only one thread is used by Augustus...
Does it make sense ? Does Augustus use several threads for some tasks and a single thread for others?
Is there anything I can do to tell Augustus to use more than one processor?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Best regards,
