Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.
 numactl was used to bind copies to the cores

Operating System Notes

 'ulimit -s unlimited' was used to set the stacksize to unlimited prior to run
 'mount -t hugetlbfs nodev /mnt/hugepages' was used to enable large pages
 echo 10800 > /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages
 export HUGETLB_MORECORE=yes
 export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libhugetlbfs.so

Platform Notes

 Load Default BIOS Settings and then change the following
 Turbo Mode enabled
 Turbo Boost set to Traditional
 Power C-states enabled
 Demand Scrub disabled
