Operating System Notes


Environment Variable Settings:

The maximum number of threads a program can create was set with:
    OMP_NUM_THREADS=64

Program threads were bound to processors with:
    SUNW_MP_PROCBIND="  1  2  4  6  8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 30 32 34
                       36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 58 60 62 64 66 68 70
                       72 74 76 78 80 82 84 86 88 90 92 94 96 98 100 102 104
                       104 106 108 110 112 114 116 118 120 122 124 126 "

Behavior of parallel threads was set with:
    SUNW_MP_THR_IDLE=SPIN
SPIN specifies that an idle thread should spin while waiting at barrier
or waiting for new parallel regions to work on.


System Tunables (/etc/system parameters):

tune_t_fsflushr=10
    Controls how many seconds elapse between runs of the
    page flush daemon, fsflush.
autoup=300
    Causes pages older than the listed number of seconds to
    be written by fsflush.
bufhwm=3000
    Memory byte limit for caching I/O buffers
segmap_percent=3
    Set maximum percent memory for file system cache
lpg_alloc_prefer=1
    Set lgroup page allocation to strongly prefer local pages

Other System Settings:

The webconsole service was turned off using
    svcadm disable webconsole

Platform Notes


Memory is 8-way interleaved by filling all slots with
the same capacity DIMMs.

This result is measured on a Sun SPARC Enterprise M8000 Server.
Note that the Sun SPARC Enterprise M8000 and Fujitsu SPARC Enterprise
M8000 are electrically equivalent.
