With a total of 480 RPs stage 2 was taking almost exactly 1 minute per RP. i.e. if it was doing 60 RPs it took 60 minutes. But with a total of 960 RPs it is taking MORE THAN 2 minutes per RP. i.e. if it is doing 60 RPs it is taking about 135 minutes and so the entire P-1 is taking longer overall. Seems odd that I am slowing down with MORE RAM. NOTE a typical assignment is: Code: Pminus1=N/A,1,2,47299781,-1,1000000,20000000,73 Hold the presses... After a more formal and official calculation it seems it made not enough difference to measure yet... Last fiddled with by petrw1 on 2018-11-07 at 21:25 Reason: Hold the presses
