How to Use Intel® Cluster Checker v3 When the Cluster Head Node Has an Intel® Xeon Phi Coprocessor Installed

In case your cluster uses a head node with one or more Intel® Xeon PhiTM coprocessors a couple more step have to be taken in order to collect all information.

First of all execute the clck-collect command using your configuration file and node list.

clck-collect -a -c <your configuration file> -f <your node list>

Then create a second node list containing just the name of the head node, without any additional "role:" tag.

Now you can collect the additional information by executing

  • Perception of Highlight Disparity at a Distance in Consumer Head-Mounted Displays

    Stereo rendering for 3D displays and for virtual reality headsets provide several visual cues, including convergence angle and highlight disparity. Naïve stereo rendering effectively doubles the computational burden of image synthesis, and thus it is desirable to reuse as many computations as possible between the stereo image pair. Computing a single radiance for a point on a surface, to be used when synthesizing both the left and right images, results in the loss of highlight disparity. Our hypothesis is that absence of highlight disparity does not impair perception of surface properties at larger distances. We verify this hypothesis with a user study and provide rendering guidelines to leverage our findings.
