MySQL Not Utilizing Multiple CPUs?

Hi, We have got new servers for one of our applications and one was setup as a dedicated server for MySQl - Since the time we moved to the new servers we have performance issues and the site goes down too often - Application level issues are almost ruled out and we are looking at the settings etc. The server config is - Intel Xeon CPU - 8 Processors- E5410 @ 2.33 GHz, 4 GB RAM. The salient settings @ config level include - max_connections=500 (increased from 250), key_buffer_size=200M, innodb_buffer_pool_size=1024M, innodb_thread_concurrency=18. The web app is a Java based one and we have seen "Communication Link Failure" Errors on the log and the remote access is enabled for root in all required places - We have also noticed that the CPU usage never goes beyond 30 - 35% and when we look at the Performance graph, out of the 8 only 2 seems to be busy. At the same time, we have carnage happening at App level with the tomcat threads being hung the with too long response times - the point is we seem to be not using all CPU power - Is there a setting which caps mysql usage also what do we need to do explicitly to get/make sure all CPUs are used? (except innodb_thread_concurrency, which is at 18). Please suggest this is an emergency and any help is greatly appreciated - Also does the communication link failure points to network issues?
