comment Is there a way to run a job exclusively on a chip?
Or if you want to target the average performance. Unfortunately, the application takes too long to run (hours to days) to directly measure it. Let's try to stick to the question asked. Q&A doesn't lend itself well to side discussions from speculation about the question.

comment How can I measure speedups on my application when performance varies on my machine?
I don't think you understand the nature of the question. You use a profiler to identify a hot spot and come up a tweak to speed things up. A good software engineer will verify that the tweak does indeed speed things up and that's where I'm running into trouble. Running the same program multiple times can result in wide variations in performance, showing small slowdowns in some cases and big speedups in other cases so I can't test whether my tweaks are actually working! It's a problem I've noticed on our newer machines. Unfortunately, for some tweaks only the newer machines have enough memory.

Very little disk or swapping - it's a CPU bound application. No other processes running of significance. It occurs cache could be responsible but seems like a lot of variation for cache.

comment How can I fix this configure error?
Didn't look at config.log but have now. There was a suggestion buried in there that helped. Needed to point it to lib/pkgconfig. Never know how to read those log files and still don't but got enough out of it. Thanks!

comment Why is mkdir failing to make directories?
I've added it - will be curious to see if anything pops up. I don't know if it's the answer but good suggestion!
