Hey again,

I've found the bottleneck of my algorithm. Drools was running in infinite loops, using only one core and letting the others wait.
So I've solved this problem by putting a limit how many rules it shall fire max. But fixing this bug, revealed a more suspicious bug.

Sometimes ECJ runs with all threads waiting. I've checked if the problem comes from Drools again, but this time it's after/before 
Drools run. I've checked which threads are running with VisualVM, getting the result that only Attach Listener, Signal Dispatcher 
and some RMI TCP threads are running, while all my threads 0-14 are waiting. 

So what would I'd like to know is, what could cause all threads to wait? Doesn't the merger handle the threads after they're finished?
By the way it seems that this bug occurs after Drools has finished and the rule has been evaluated, but I'm not sure because I don't 
know how many times it needs to run. (Depends on Generations and Population it needs)

Greetings

Bojan

Betreff: Re: ECJ is not using all cores

Hi Uday,

I've specified the cores if you look at my previous answer to Warren. Are there some more
places where to define multi-threading for ECJ? I don't find any other information than
setting the cores with breedthreads and evalthreads.

Greetings

Bojan

Bojan
ECJ can be multi threaded, look at the manual, various elements of
breeding, evaluating, etc can be multithreaded and you can specify
threads=cores to get full parallelism. I am running ECJ on 12 core and
using all of them, so shouldn't be an issue.
Uday
