Description de_logics 2009-03-30 17:47:20 UTC
All openoffice applications use only one core of the processor; though office
work does not require that much of processing, but at certain cases (for
instance doing lengthy scientific calculations in spreadsheets and making
detailed and complex drawings in draw, or importing the same drawing to writer)
time can get to more than an hour; this time can be reduced to half using all
the 2 cores or 1/4th using 4 cores in quad core processors. The save times
should also be dramatically improving on doing so.

Also a proper GUI for the estimated time left and the percentage of processing
completed is requested to the addition so at least windows doesn't give it a tag
'not responding'.

IF this issue is resolved, and with a few addition of small features and major
performance optimisations, OOo will actually be the only office suit to work in
high performance systems optimised for scientific calculations, like the large
systems with NVIDIA tesla or ATI FireStream.
Comment 2 de_logics 2009-05-27 18:52:02 UTC
This could be a breakthrough feature for OOo 4

de-Logics, please learn how qa and issue tracking works, before playing around
with the fields here.

Removing CC.

But this issue seems cold for quiet a lot of time.

TM->requirements: please have a look, thanks !
Comment 6 de_logics 2010-12-20 13:32:58 UTC
You devs seen this 'graphite' thing in GCC? Parallelization might not require
effort after all. It'll make sense to modify OOo code to compile with graphite
and let it do the parallelization.

I need multithreading

I need multithreading!!! For opening this big spreadsheets.

So, I think openoffice and libreoffice are need multithreading
