Re: [eigen] Different computation time when using Eige

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

The input data and output date are the same, but the running time is much different, some times very fast, some times much slower. 

The matrix is 128*1024, and the vector is 1024, I didn't know why the running time is so much different.

0.4 second and 2.1 second is just an example, maybe this time I can get the output using just 0.4 second, and the next time 1.9 second, or 2.1 second or some other value.

I'd need a bit more details to get any idea what is happening. E.g.:
Are the matrix sizes the same all the time (and how big are they)?
Does cur->i = this->bi involve resizing/memory allocation?
Is 0.4--2.1 seconds the time for all for computations or for each (or for multiple times)?
What Eigen version are you running?

The easiest way for us would be, if you could produce a minimal working example which exposes the problem.

I have used eigen to do the following computation in a deep learning

W* is a matrix, and h, f, i, o, u are all vectors.

But I tried several times with the same input data, the time consuming is
much different.
Some times it costs 0.4 second to get the output, but some times it cost
2.1 second to get the output.

  How can I solve this problem to get stable time cost ?
