By ylian-saint-hilaire (Intel) Posted on 05/28/15 0
It’s been a while since the last Meshcentral announcement for good raison, I was on sabbatical. So far this year it’s been an amazing time for Meshcentral and the Mesh team. In the last few weeks, I have been very lucky in being able to tour Quebec, France and Italy like I have never done it be...
Ubuntu 15.04 Provides Openstack Kilo Preinstalled for Easier Deployments on ONP Servers
By Thomas K. (Intel) Posted on 05/26/15 0
The folks here at Intel see me as a bit of an Ubuntu fanboy.  For the most part, I spend a lot of time in the lab working on the ONP Server using CentOS.   For me, it is less about being an Ubuntu fan and more about using a platform that is easier choice for Openstack developers.    I recently ha...

Innovation at Intel: Waiting for “Now” to Get Here
By Roger Chandler (Intel) Posted on 05/22/15 0
We focus a lot on innovation at Intel. I’d like to talk about why we do it. It’s about responsibility. In my opinion, Intel makes the most technologically advanced mass-produced products in the history of humanity. And every 18 to 24 months we seemingly double the performance or capabilities of ...

Elusive Algorithms - Parallel Scan
By jimdempseyatthecove Posted on 05/22/15 1
Last month there was a query on the IDZ MIC forum "how to perform inclusive scan in C cilk" in which my initial reply was: Parallelizing this is problematic due to the next result being dependent upon the prior result. While this is not impossible, it is rather difficult and it introduces some r...

It's here! The Intel Guide for Developing Multithreaded Applications
By Clay Breshears (Intel) Posted on 10/27/11 13
Okay, so it's not something that I would promote as "New & Improved"  with big splashy TV commercials, like some laundry detergent or kids' sugary drink. I would be more likely to skip the trumpets and play a fanfare on a kazoo instead. Even so, I'm excited to announce that the Intel Guide f...
C-states and P-states are very different
By Taylor K. (Intel) Posted on 01/01/15 13
C-states are idle states and P-states are operational states. This difference, though obvious once you know, can be initially confusing. With the exception of C0, where the CPU is active and busy doing something, a C-state is an idle state. Since an idle CPU isn't doing anything (i.e. any usefu...

Is your memory management multi-core ready?
By Roman Dementiev (Intel) Posted on 08/21/09 13
Recently I have got a workload that could not scale beyond a few cores. This particular application is using one thread per user, so theoretically, if one has an 8-core machine then 8 concurrent users should fully utilize the machine giving 8x speedup compared to a sequential run. It did not happ...

By David Stewart (Intel) Posted on 01/22/09 12
Today is the second anniversary of the Sun and Intel joint agreement to optimize the Solaris operating system for Intel Xeon processors. Like last year, when I wrote this summary of our work, I decided to recap where we are to date. Like last year’s edition, this is pretty much off the top of my ...

Doctor Fortran in "I've Come Here For An Argument, Side 2"
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 07/10/09 11
My earlier post, "I've Come Here For An Argument", was very popular with my fellow support engineers, as it provided a convenient answer to questions they frequently receive.  (For me too, which in part is why I wrote it!) But some people (cough, Ron, cough) are never satisfied, and I've been ask...
