Server mode snap engine


I am just wondering when you use the graph processing tool (gpt) through the command line, does it by default use the snap engine in server mode? Or does it choose when to do so automatically? I am just wondering if it is possible to set the gpt to run in server mode as an issue I am having seems to be related to server mode of snap engine. i.e. when I run multiple instances of gpt for a command such as TopSarsplit at the same time I get an error which says the solution could be “Possible solutions: close all other connection(s); use the server mode [90020-197]”, but I am unsure of how I use the server mode.

But to answer your question. The engine is not put into any server mode automatically.
