I have transcribed the discussion and progress of the VOLK working group
from GR Con on the wiki
The goal of this group is generally to identify areas (and work on
that GNU Radio can change to improve performance on GPPs. VOLK is
the bulk of that. I want to highlight that one of the primary outputs of
the working group was a desire for data to guide optimization efforts.
If you know of blocks with work that can/should be vectorized, point
out. I’m not sure of the best location to track this, whether it’s the
redmine issue tracker or a wiki page, as it would hopefully be a
door type of list. For now just email the list (or reply to this email
would be great).
Similarly, Tim O’Shea worked on adding an option to pybombs to run
volk_profile post-install of gnuradio and optionally report results. 1)
yes! 2) If anybody is eager to compile results to be presentable at
stats.gnuradio.org then pipe up.
