I'll ask on the email list, and post again here. Might be a few days....

nodes?

I recently ran a customer's weather modeling code on a variety
of machines. This program is very sensitive to memory. The
following are the run times while running 4 processes. Please
note that the Xeon, Opteron and Barcelona numbers are from dual
socket machines.

Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz - 3h16m Xeon Quad 2.0 GHz - 2h51m Barcelona
2.0 GHz - 1h40m Opteron 2220SE 2.8 GHz - 2h24m

At 8 processes:

Xeon Quad 2.0 GHz - 2h52m Barcelona 2.0 GHz - 1h22m

w man! Details!

Looks like we'll have to wait a bit:

I assume these are all one-system results?
MPI or OpenMP?
Looks like the Xeon Quad and Barcelona results must have been run with
2 processes per socket?
Was it one executable? Compiled/optimized on what platform?

Very interesting data, you may just want to provide the list with some
additional details, so they know what to make of the data.

These are single system results with MVAPICH. They will run on
InfiniBand which is why MVAPICH was used.

The quad core runs were 2 processes per socket.

The executables were created with the latest Portland Group f90 and
the optimisation flags were used for each chip. The Barcelona binary
used "-tp barcelona-64" and the Xeon binary used "-tp core2-64."

As soon as I am able I will be running this test on Harpertown

processors. I should then have permission to publish the details of
the testing.
