First gnuplot


ABsolutely fascenating. When placed in graphcal form, behaviours otherwise obscured in the mass of numbers become visible to the eye. This particular machine has dual sockets, with a total of 36 logical cores. That’s a strange number I suspect for a hypercube, and so I suspect some of the cores are disadvantaged with regard to the others when it comes to memory access – and so we see a slow core…

This of course was playing merry hell with the standard deviation numbers.
