Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.

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 72000 > /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)

General Notes

 The Dell PowerEdge R910 and
 the Bull NovaScale R480 F2 models are electronically equivalent.
 The results have been measured on a Dell PowerEdge R910 model.
 Binaries were compiled on RHEL5.5
