Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.
 taskset was used to bind processes to cores except
 for 436.cactusADM peak
 For peak modules using 1/2 the number of available cores, copies
 were each assigned to a single L2 cache using mysubmit.pl script.
 See the flags description file for mysubmit.pl details.

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:
Hardware Prefetcher:             Disabled
Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch:    Disabled
FSB High Bandwidth Optimization:  Enabled

General Notes

 The NEC Express5800/R140a-4(Intel Xeon X7460) and
 the Bull NovaScale R480 E1(Intel Xeon X7460, 2.66 GHz) models are electronically equivalent.
 The results have been measured on a NEC Express5800/R140a-4(Intel Xeon X7460) model.
