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.

General Notes

Environment variables set by runspec before the start of the run:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH = "/root/CPU2006-1.2/libs/32:/root/CPU2006-1.2/libs/64"

 Binaries compiled on a system with 1x Core i7-860 CPU + 8GB
 memory using RHEL5.5
 Transparent Huge Pages enabled with:
 echo always > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
 Filesystem page cache cleared with:
