General Notes

 Software environment:
   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
