Frequently I need to load multiple pcd files, which takes some time when loading sequentially.
So I tried using threading to execute several
o3d.io.read_point_cloud calls concurrently.
But the performance was not any better. Plenty of IO bandwidth on the SSD, and plenty of spare CPU cores too.
It’s probably a Python GIL (Global Interpreter Lock) issue.
Anyone know if there’s a simple fix to release the GIL in pybind?
