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.
