I’ve been doing some profiling on a program and the profiler reports that I am achieving an instruction throughput ratio of 1.10. I am a little unclear as to what that actually means, since intuitively it seems the maximum would be 1.00. The description of instruction throughput ratio in the README is not specific enough, and web searches have found nothing helpful.
Could anybody help me understand the meaning of “instruction throughput ratio” better than the README does?
And what is the actual maximum ratio that can be achieved, since apparently 1.00 is not it?
