Subject: [PATCH v3 12/12] grep: use no. of cores as the default no. of threads
Date: Wed, 15 Jan 2020 23:40:00 -0300
Message-ID: <a5891176d7778b98ac35c756170dd334b8ee21c7.1579141989.git.matheus.bernardino@usp.br> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1579141989.git.matheus.bernardino@usp.br>

When --threads is not specified, git-grep will use 8 threads by default.
This fixed number may be too many for machines with fewer cores and too
little for machines with more cores. So, instead, use the number of
logical cores available in the machine, which seems to result in the
best overall performance: The following measurements correspond to the
mean elapsed times for 30 git-grep executions in chromium's
repository[1] with a 95% confidence interval (each set of 30 were
performed after 2 warmup runs). Regex 1 is 'abcd[02]' and Regex 2 is
'(static|extern) (int|double) \*'.

The above tests were performed in a desktop running Debian 10.0 with
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1230 V2 (4 cores w/ hyper-threading), 32GB of
RAM and a 7200 rpm, SATA 3.1 HDD.

Bellow, the tests were repeated for a machine with SSD: a Manjaro laptop
with Intel(R) i7-7700HQ (4 cores w/ hyper-threading) and 16GB of RAM:
