Anyone have any good methods or suggestions for getting accurate fpop and memory bound estimations for the milkyway app?

Accurate fpop ... estimations

Don't know how much this helps, but my laptop is running the 0.7 application in 9466.515625 seconds (~3:0x) with a DCF of 0.196707; I don't know about others but the estimate can be reduced to around 1/5th in my case.
(What's the DCF for the project right now?)

memory bound estimations for the milkyway app?


Not sure if this is what you are after, the final 5 seconds of running the memory usage jumps up to 150-160k.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

I think this was caused by the memory leak in the likelihood calculation. This should be fixed in versions 0.8 and later.
