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 28800 > /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
