I'm just running what you posted, dude :)

Well, something clearly isn't right, because my numbers don't match
yours at all. This time with THP disabled, and compared to the rest of
the numbers from my previous runs:


numa01 366 335 356 377
numa01THP 388 336 353 399

That shows that autonuma is worse than inverse binds here. If I'm
running your stuff incorrectly, please tell me and I'll correct
it. However, I've now compiled the binary exactly as you asked, with THP
disabled, and am seeing surprisingly consistent results.

Yep, 24G here. Do I need to tweak the test?

How do you figure? I didn't post any hard binding numbers. In fact,
numasched performed about equal to hard binding...definitely within your
stated 2% error interval. That was with THP enabled, tomorrow I'll be
glad to run them all again without THP.
