Operating System Notes

'ulimit -s unlimited' was used to set the stacksize to unlimited prior to run
 Hugepages was enabled with the following:
   'nodev   /mnt/hugepages   hugetlbfs  defaults   0 0' added to /etc/fstab
    echo 900 > /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
  Hardware Prefetch Enabled
  Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch Enabled
  L1 Data Prefetch Enabled
  Intel Hyperthreading Options Disabled

General Notes

 OMP_NUM_THREADS set to number of cores
 KMP_AFFINITY set to granularity=fine,scatter
Binaries were compiled on RHEL5.5 with Binutils binutils-2.17.50.0.6-14.el5
