By default, GNU Go makes a cache of 16 Megabytes in RAM for its internal use. The cache is used to store intermediate results during its analysis of the position.
Increasing the cache size will often give a modest speed improvement. If your system has lots of RAM, consider increasing the cache size. But if the cache is too large, swapping will occur, causing hard drive accesses and degrading performance. If your hard drive seems to be running excessively your cache may be too large. On GNU/Linux systems, you may detect swapping using the program 'top'. Use the 'f' command to toggle SWAP display.
You may override the size of the default cache at compile time by running one of:
to set the cache size to
n megabytes. For example
creates a cache of size 32 megabytes. If you omit this, your default
cache size will be 8 MB. You must recompile and reinstall
GNU Go after reconfiguring it by running
You may override the compile-time defaults by running gnugo with the
option `--cache-size n', where
n is the size in
megabytes of the cache you want, and `--level' where n is the
level desired. We will discuss setting these parameters next in detail.
