 Software environment:
   export MPI_REQUEST_MAX=65536
   export MPI_TYPE_MAX=32768
   export MPI_BUFS_THRESHOLD=1
   export MPI_DSM_DISTRIBUTE=yes
   export MPI_IB_RAILS=2
   ulimit -s unlimited
 BIOS settings:
   AMI BIOS version 8.15
   Hyper-Threading Technology enabled (default)
   Intel Turbo Boost Technology enabled (default)
   Intel Turbo Boost Technology activated in the OS via
     /etc/init.d/acpid start
     /etc/init.d/powersaved start
     powersave -f
 Interconnect Data Rate:
   The system interconnect has DDR InfiniBand HCAs,
   while the switches and cables run up to QDR rate.
 Job Placement:
   Each MPI job was assigned to a topologically compact set
   of nodes, i.e. the minimal needed number of switches was
   used for each job: 2 switches for 16/32/64 ranks,
   4 switches for 128 ranks, 8 switches for 256 ranks,
   16 switches for 512 ranks, 32 switches for 1024 ranks,
   64 switches for 2048 ranks and 128 switches for
   4096 ranks.
