multi-threading, UPnP, and 64-bit support
« on: January 06, 2011, 03:29:23 »
Does Similarity support multiple threads? I don't see any option to set the amount of cores or threads for the program. Also 64-bit would allow greater memory space, taking advantage of machines with 4+ gigs of ram. And would there be any advantage of GPU acceleration for the analysis?

For the network port, you should use UPnP to open the port on routers.

Thanks for you suggestion.
Yes, Similarity use multiply threads, in future we add some setting to control threads count in options dialog, in current implementation it use 1 thread for every physical core in thread pool.
About 64bit, maybe in future, with 32bit, we limited by 200 000 sound files ~2Gb, this is very huge amount of files.
About UPnP, network functionality only in experemental stage and not in priority list in current moment.
