I have tweaked the tuneup parameters a bit. I removed min_size for
HGCD_APPR_THRESHOLD (was 30, now uses the default of 10). This threshold
is definitely lower than I had expected. On
http://gmplib.org/devel/HGCD_APPR_THRESHOLD.html, it's 10 on one machine
(itanium2), and 11 or 12 on several 64-bit machines (x86_64 and power).
I suppose 10 is still too high then. Or doesn't the code support lower
The spreading of measured values for k10/k8 makes me suspect that
something might not be right.
All k10 and k8 machines using 64-bit limbs get values less then 30,
but one is far off that:
These machines have two nehalem generation CPUs:
(There is a slight difference in integer division performance, but I
doubt you're using integer division.)
I also increased max_size and step_factor for HGCD_REDUCE_THRESHOLD.
That might have broken tuneup a bit, I see results are missing for a
large number of machines for last night. Typical values seem to be a few
Missing values are not alarming, (many) red ones are. Things look good
Most of the GMP testing is nowadays done on emulators or under
virtualisers; running tuneup there makes limited sense.
