BKMs on the use of the SIMD directive

We had an ask from one of the various “Birds of a Feather” meetings Intel® holds at venues such as at the Super Computing* (SC) and International Super Computing* (ISC) conferences. The customer wanted to know BKMs (Best Known Methods) on the proper usage of the new OpenMP* 4.0 / Intel® Cilk™ Plus SIMD directive. I volunteered to create such a list. Investigating the topic more thoroughly, I discovered that there is already a vast amount of resources on vectorization and the use of the SIMD directive.

Resource Guide for Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor Administrators

This article makes recommendations for how an administrator can get up to speed quickly on the Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel® MIC) Architecture. This article is 1 of 3: For the Administrator, for the Developer, and for the Investigator. Someone who will administer and support a set of machines (individual/cluster) containing coprocessors. The assumption is that the following topics are of most interest to him. Administrative tools and configurations for the Intel Manycore Platform Software Stack (Intel MPSS) Technical support services Library support Language support Network infrastructure Installation documentation Cluster administration and FAQ Scripting support

    SO WHEN IS TURBO USEFUL

    Let us cut to the chase and ask the two most important questions:

    Excellent Power Management Reference

    Dear passionate power management reader,

    Doing an internet scan for material having to do with power management policy, my next blog series, I ran across a blog that I believe to be excellent. As many of you have discovered, I generally write at a pretty high level, though technical. I do this intentionally. At the beginning of my blogging career, there was not much written about power management that was comprehensible to a competent engineer who was not a power expert.

    HOW DO WE CONFIGURE COPROCESSOR POWER MANAGEMENT

    Quick Start Guides Published for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor Expert User

    This is a short notice to let you know that two new articles have been published for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor: * Quick Start Guide: For the Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor Administrator * Quick Start Guide: For the Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor Developer The target of both of these guides is the expert user. Our assumption is that the expert user does not need to be told what to do, as he already has potentially decades of experience doing his job. Similarly, he does not need to be told how to research his area of expertise as he has done so dozens of times in the past. As these users are new to administering or developing on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, they want to know only where they can find key resources, such as cluster administration guides, technical support and examples.

    Power Configuration Part 0: Introduction: Yikes, there is a lot that is not documented

    I was hoping to write a brief two part overview of how to configure the various power settings for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. It was going to be concise and brief, allowing me to get on to the next topic. Unfortunately, as I dug into the topic further, I discovered that much of it is not very well documented. I found myself essentially writing quite a bit of explanation.

    As usual, I am starting off writing this as a series of blogs. At a later point, I will reformat the blogs into a more formal article with any semblance of humor removed.
