   then it would be possible to make a direct comparison (against the
figures you just sent), against the e.g. 32-threads case.  32 readers,
2 writers.  32 readers, 4 writers.  32 readers, 8 writers and so on.
keeping the number of threads (write plus read) to below or equal the
total number of cores avoids any unnecessary context-switching

We can do that by running two instances of the benchmark program
concurrently; one doing a read-only job with a fixed number of threads (32)
and one doing a write-only job with the increasing number of threads.

  ohh, ok - great.  saves a job doing some programming at least.

This is why it's important to support both multi-process and multi-threaded
concurrency ;)
