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

 Turbo Mode enabled in BIOS
 Turbo Boost set to Traditional in BIOS
 Power C-states enabled in BIOS
 Demand Scrub disabled in BIOS

General Notes

 OMP_NUM_THREADS set to number of cores
