Re: [isabelle] isabelle build: number of threads

My processor is an i7-3630QM (4 cores, 8 threads; which are reported as 8
cores in /proc/cpuinfo ). So I would expect that by default 8 threads are
used by "isabelle build". However, I get messages like the following
Timing <session-name> (4 threads, 44.314s elapsed time, 158.450s cpu time,
34.924s GC time, factor 3.58)
Finished <session-name> (0:00:57 elapsed time, 0:02:56 cpu time, factor
Indicating that only 4 threads are used. When I do the same thing on a
different machine with an i7-3520M (2 cores, 4 threads) the corresponding
messages are also saying "4 threads".
So my question is, how is the number of threads determined when
ISASBELLE_BUILD_OPTIONS is empty?
(This thread is still left-over from last year.)
The main input parameter for Isabelle/ML to determine the number of worker
threads is the system option "threads". It is used both for batch build
and Isabelle/Scala interaction (e.g. Isabelle/jEdit).
In $ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/preferences you can see your local persistent
preferences, i.e. what you typically edit via Isabelle/jEdit Plugin
Options. I guess that you just have threads = "4" there.
