How to disable physical and virtual CPU cores in Apple XCode Instruments

Where is Instruments?

Instruments is part of Apple XCode, though it is buried inside the XCode application and not self evident in the Applications or Utilities folder.

The easiest way to get to it is to search for it with Spotlight (cmd-space), then show it in the Finder (Show All in Finder). Then drag it to the Dock, which makes an alias to it.
