Submit Notes

The config file option 'submit' was used.

General Notes

BIOS settings notes:
  Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (SMT): Disabled (default is Enabled)
  Intel Turbo Boost Technology (Turbo)  : Disabled (default is Enabled)

RAM configuration notes: compute nodes have
  1x2-GB and 1x1-GB RDIMM on each memory channel,
  2-GB RDIMM is closer to the CPU.

Network notes: nine 36-port switches, 3 core switches and 6 leaf switches.
  Each leaf has 6 links to each core. Remaining 18 ports on 5 of 6 leafs are
  used for compute nodes. On the sixth leaf 8 ports are used for FS nodes,
  remaining 10 ports are open.

PBS Pro was used for job submission. It has no impact on performance.
