as Michael mentioned in another thread, i should help my self to get fpsieve rocking on an above average number of cores. Currently fpsieve got a hard limit of 32 worker threads (33 in total). Is Geoff still around to elaborate on why he came up with this number? My first guess, there could be a performance decrease because fpsieve waits for all threads to finish on checkpoints, so if there is a thread which cant finish in a timely manner, it locks more or less all other threads.
I found geoffs code is still in the state of 2009 and version 0.2.4
On my endeavour on finding other sources, i stumbled upon Roger's repo at github and his integration of compositorial sieving code.
Is there any more current code around?
Is there a plain C implementation of geoffs asm sieving code available?
What did Roger change on his code base apart of new conditions to include his sieving code?
