    I don't think so.
    all modern many cpu machine stand on NUMA.
    it mean following,
    - if cpu increases, then zone increases, too.

    if default value increase by #cpus, lock contension dramatically increase
    on large numa.

    Have I overlooked anything?

    and, (but) i afraid to 3 is too small value.
    if you have another test result on large machine, please show me.
