problem with shared heap?
Wed Mar 5 22:40:39 CET 2003
When trying the new R9B-1 I decided to compile with --enable-shared-heap
to see how much faster my code would run, to my surprise the result was
quite alot slower.
My system is a Pentium4 running Linux 2.4.18 and R9B-1 with HiPE enabled
(actually: not disabled) in both cases.
Is this a known problem (and why shared heap is still experimental), or
is there any rule of thumb when to use or not to use shared heap ?
