Hi Reginald,

Here are the hardware specs i'm comparing.

System 1
Windows XP SP2
Intel Core i5 650 @ 3.20GHz 4 MB Cache
3GiB DDR3 1066/1333
CPU mark (according to : 3154
Total computation time : 331 sec

System 2
Windows XP SP2, Windows 7 64bits, Debian 64bits
Core i7 CPU M 620 @ 2.67GHz 4M Cache
4GiB DDR3 1066
CPU mark (according to : 2718
Total computation time : 114 secs

System 3
Windows XP SP2, Debian 64bits
Core 2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz 4 MB Cache L2
4GiB DDR2 800
CPU mark (according to : 1493
Total computation time : 172 secs

I didn't run the benchmark on the computer it self, but the different between the number is big enough to expect better performance from System no 1 then System no 3. The total computation time of the problem on different platform for the same computer are almost identical. (less then 0.5 sec different). It's safe to assume the platform doesn't have any impact on the performance.

I'm using GLPK 4.47 on every platform. On Linux, I did compile it from source with default flags. For Windows, I pick the pre-compiled version provided by winglpk project.

To solve the problem, I need to run GLPK multiple time sequentially. I may provide dump of every instance of the problem.

System configurations you're comparing?  GLPK version?  Compile time options specified?

There are a huge number of possibilities.  Why do you think the computer is "more powerful"?

I'm using GLPK in one project and the time taken to compute is longer on a more powerful computer. Does it make any sense to you ? 

I don't have any clues about how to debug it. I would really appreciate tips to diagnose the problem.
