Submit Notes

The numactl mechanism was used to bind copies to processors. The config file option 'submit'
was used to generate numactl commands to bind each copy to a specific processor.
For details, please see the config file.

Operating System Notes

 Stack size set to unlimited using "ulimit -s unlimited"
