Subject Re: why do_field_sorting turned off when calculating offset for fields?
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2008 08:16:32 GMT
Hi, Xiaoming!

If I recall correctly, field sorting incurs some performance
degradations on some of SPECjvm2008 benchmarks. But it helps
SPECjbb2005 a lot, say +1-2%. Here's the issue [1], where these
options were introduced.
