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

 BIOS Settings:
 Power Management = Maximum Performance (Default = Active Power Controller)
 Data Reuse = Disabled (Default = Enabled)

General Notes

 The Dell PowerEdge R710 and
 the Bull NovaScale R460 F2 models are electronically equivalent.
 The results have been measured on a Dell PowerEdge R710 model.
