Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.
'numactl' was used to bind copies to the cores.
See the configuration file for details.

Operating System Notes

'ulimit -s unlimited' was used to set environment stack size
'ulimit -l 2097152'  was used to set environment locked pages in memory limit

Binaries were compiled on a system with 2x AMD Opteron 6276 chips + 128GB Memory using RHEL 6.1
Huge pages, transparent Huge pages, and space randomization controlled with the following settings:
echo 57344 > /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages
mount -t hugetlbfs nodev /mnt/hugepages
echo never > /sys/kernel/mm/redhat_transparent_hugepage/enabled
echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space=0

Platform Notes

'Power Management' set to 'Maximum Performance' in BIOS
Core Boost Technology Disabled in BIOS

General Notes

Environment variables set by runspec before the start of the run:
HUGETLB_LIMIT = "896"
LD_LIBRARY_PATH = "/root/cpu2006-1.1/amd1104-rate-libs-revA/32:/root/cpu2006-1.1/amd1104-rate-libs-revA/64"
