Please note:

  • The most time intensive inner loop (about 20 lines of code needs about 80% of the running time) is highly optimized in C to achieve the best performance.
    Especially in the Windows version this code is about 25% faster (depends on platform) because it is written in Assembler x86 and optimized for Pentium(R) Pro, Pentium(R) II, and Pentium(R) III processors.
  • The performance index maybe higher for a higher library version number using the same work unit ID.
  • The performance index maybe higher by using Sun JRE 1.4.1 compared to Sun JRE 1.3.1.
  • The performance index can also be about 30% higher if you change the priority of the process to high.
  • Sometimes there may exist ranges of zeros where the performance index could be very low, e.g. close pair of zeros.
    The performance index depends partly on the work unit ID.
  • The performance index will decrease about 0.3% per day because the complexity to separate the zeros is growing continuously. Therefore, the perfomance index will be 10% lower in about 30 days.
