Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.
 taskset was used to bind processes to cores except
 for 462.libquantum peak

Operating System Notes

 'ulimit -s unlimited' was used to set the stacksize to unlimited prior to run
 OMP_NUM_THREADS set to number of cores
 KMP_AFFINITY set to "physical,0"
 KMP_STACKSIZE set to 64M

Platform Notes

 BIOS Settings:
 Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch = Disabled
