In other news, after I got numactl to work on my machine, I see a very slight speed increase. I run two instances of the SMP client, one bound to node 0 (core 0+1) and it's RAM, the other bound to node 1 (core 2+3) and the RAM attached there. Before I had numactl working, it was about 29.5 minutes per frame, but with the binding in place, it's now down to 28.5 minutes. Not as much difference as I'd have expected, but then most of the work is probably done in the cache anyway.


now add

chrt 4 before numactl

chrt 4 numactl>the rest this works well on 2.6 kernels for me

Higher numbers can be used but 4 seems to let everthing work well together, but see what works for you.

The new kernels are Tickless I could get into explaining that but Its not a topic for FAH
