Is there a way to to get a Bamboo agent to run multiple jobs at one time?

We have a powerful (multi cpus) build machine that we would like to run multiple bamboo jobs on. It appears that the agent waits for a job to finish before allowing the next one to start. Is there a way to get that agent to start multiple jobs in parallel? Should we run multiple agents as multiple users? Suggestions welcome.

An agent will consume a single job at a time and will block any other Bamboo jobs from being processed until that job build is complete. If you would like to build multiple jobs simultaneously on the Bamboo server, then simplyset up multiple local agents. If the agents are remote, then you will need to install that number of agent instances on the machine. Separate installations are required because each remote agent will need its own home and log directories.
