Use memory allocated in offload region on host


This post covers two questions. I actually just need a (positive) answer for one of them, as that would be enough to solve my problem. But it would be nice to get an answer for both.

1. Is it possible to write to disk from the offload region?

2. How can I use memory allocated inside the offload region in the host?

Windows External Network Bridge


Is it possible to setup an external network bridge for the PHI on using a windows based operating system?

This information is not provided in the User's Guide.

I have simply highlighted the PHI and External network adapters and created a bridge.

What are the next steps for this to work?

Do i absolutely need to use Linux for this feature?



Intel Xeon Phi - IBM Flex x240


I joint the HPC Code Modernization Workshop held in Stockholm on June 3'rd 2015.

At the workshop we were offered an Intel software/hardware bundle including "Intel Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition and 1 Intel Xeon Phi 5150P".

My development environment is a IBM Flex x240  computer node with 2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2643 0 @ 3.30GHz CPU's and 256 GB RAM.

In order to install the Intel Xeon Phi 5110P, I need to by a Flex System PCIe Expansion Node, but I am a bit unsure if the offered Xeon Phi processor can be installed.
