Can somebody tell me how to use the parallelism feature of GNU make?
I tried to use the following command for parallel build but it is not working.
Make –j 7 –f makefile.mak build
When I execute the above command, I can see that the GNU make is utilizing 40%-60% of CPU. When I execute the same command using clearmake(clearmake –j 7 makefile.mak build) process, I can see that it is always utilizing
80-100% of CPU. Which informs that the GNU make process is not using the parallelism.
Note: Versions of GNU make tested (3.81 and 4.1)
Thanks in advanceJ
