You can get ~10% performance improvements if you recompile fc with libgmp support, using following instruction.
- Install libgmp (requires only for compilation) using command:
sudo apt-get install libgmp-dev
- Make change to fc library described in this commit
- Reconfigure and recompile Steem as usual (cmake . & make)
Please post here how much performance boost you get.
Feel free to share the link to this page. At this page I will publish updates and future optimizations if any.
If you found this information useful, any donations will be greatly appreciated. My Steem and BitShares account is testz
PS: For some non-modern systems you can get additional performance improvements by using compiler optimization options described in this commit
