Run Lco on ending test positions, 4 and 5 men. There is improvement in using syzygy, but overall it seems it is still too low considering that it is already using egt and the test has only 1 best move, if it is a draw all other moves loses and if it is a win all other moves would just draw or lose. But perhaps it needs more time as I am not using a gpu and using only 5s per pos.
CPU Intel i7-2600K 3.4Ghz, 12GB RAM
Engine Hash: 256MB, Threads: 1
The test set is from Sergei.S.Markoff:Tablebase.Test but I removed the positions with 6-men and result with cursed wins. What remains are positions with best moves that would result to either win or draw.
You may try it on your system and lets see how it would fare.
Hi, how many nodes per second you were getting? Min, max and on average?

I run a similar TB test with yours, but with GPU instead of CPU and with a slightly modified set of testpositions since you had 2-3 with multiple solutions
You are right, I re-checked again the test sets and there are 3 pos that have more than 1 move that can win. I removed it now and uploaded a new test file ssm_egt_4_5_men_1_bm.epd
and some dubious ones that i didn't like and removed
Could you specify which positions are these?
and also put 10 more to have 400 TB positions with mostly 5 men.
All 400 positions have a single solution/move only!
v17 Lc0 10815 with 3,4,5,6 TBs on a 1070 Ti for 3 seconds per position got 350/400 , i.e 87.5 %.
v17 Lc0 10815 WITHOUT TBs on a 1070 Ti for 3 seconds per position got 291/400 , i.e 72.8 %.
Is this Lc0 v0.17.0 rc1 or rc2?
While you on a slightly different set of 394 positions, had only :
185/394 for Leela with TBs with 10780 net and
145/394 with Leela with NO TBs with 10780
Obviously the huge difference with me was not that you used a different net, nor that you used a slightly different set(around 15 positions difference), but the fact that you used CPU instead of GPU i've used.
I got from 4000 N/s to 90000 N/s with an average value of 10000 to 25000 N/s and TB hits from 30 to 8000 per position, with average of something like 1000-2000.
So it needs more nodes to find more best moves. In your egt test of 350/400, 50 were still missed, so perhaps there is still something to be improved in this area.
I run another test with that new test file, thread is 1 and Lc0 on rc2 and new net id.
