General Notes

 Software environment:
   setenv MPI_REQUEST_MAX 65536
     Determines the maximum number of nonblocking sends and
     receives that can simultaneously exist for any single MPI
     process.  MPI generates an error message if this limit
     (or the default, if not set) is exceeded.  Default:  16384
   setenv MPI_TYPE_MAX 32768
     Determines the maximum number of data types that can
     simultaneously exist for any single MPI process.
     MPI generates an error message if this limit (or the default,
     if not set) is exceeded.  Default:  1024
   setenv MPI_BUFS_THRESHOLD 1
     Determines whether MPT uses per-host or per-process message
     buffers for communicating with other hosts.  Per-host buffers
     are generally faster but for jobs running across many hosts they
     can consume a prodigious amount of memory.  MPT will use per-
     host buffers for jobs using up to and including this many hosts
     and will use per-process buffers for larger host counts.
     Default:  64
   setenv MPI_DSM_DISTRIBUTE
     Activates NUMA job placement mode.  This mode ensures that each
     MPI process gets a unique CPU and physical memory on the node
     with which that CPU is associated.  Currently, the CPUs are
     chosen by simply starting at relative CPU 0 and incrementing
     until all MPI processes have been forked.

   limit stacksize unlimited
     Removes limits on the maximum size of the automatically-
     extended stack region of the current process and each
     process it creates.
 PBS Pro batch scheduler (www.altair.com) is used with
   placement sets to ensure each MPI job is assigned to
   a topologically compact set of nodes
 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
