Multicore utilization under genetic optimization

Postby glam_100 » 08 Sep 2007


In brute force optimization, all CPU cores are being utilized at full load because each "chunk" of the optimization work is easily divisible.

However, this is not the same case under GA. I found that in the later half of GA optimization under MC, the CPU utilization drops to 50% because half of the workload has been processed. MC wouldn't distribute the remaining workload across the available cores.

Could you please e-mail or post the worspace and the strategies used? We need those to reproduce the situation, because on our side no such problem could be reproduced.
