General Notes

 Software environment:
   export MPI_REQUEST_MAX=65536
   export MPI_TYPE_MAX=32768
   export MPI_BUFS_THRESHOLD=1
   export MPI_IB_RAILS=2
   ulimit -s unlimited

 BIOS settings:
   AMI BIOS version 080016
   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

 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 96 ranks,
   4 switches for 192 ranks, 8 switches for 384 ranks,
   16 switches for 768 ranks, 32 switches for 1536 ranks.

 Additional notes regarding interconnect:
   The Infiniband network consists of two independent planes,
   with half the switches in the system allocated to each plane.
   I/O traffic is restricted to one plane, while MPI traffic can
   use both planes.
