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...

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...
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...
Doctor Fortran in "Too Much of a Good Thing?"
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 01/23/09 13
A lot of Fortran programmers take the "belt and suspenders" approach to coding, with explicit declarations of every attribute they want for a symbol.  In general, this is good practice, especially when combined with IMPLICIT NONE to force you to say what you mean.  But some programmers take this ...
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...
Sun + Intel + OpenSolaris + 2 Years = The Year of Core
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.

Doctor Fortran Gets Explicit - Again!
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 01/05/12 11
Nearly 11 years ago (!) I wrote an item for the Visual Fortran Newsletter on explicit interfaces in Fortran. In recent weeks, I have had to refer quite a few customers to this article, suggesting that many Fortran programmers don't understand the role and rules of explicit interfaces. However, wh...
Who should be writing the software to enable Intel AMT
By JOSEPH E. (Intel) Posted on 09/18/07 11
Unlike other technologies that we produce here at Intel, AMT requires a complex ecosystem for it to provide full value to IT shops. One of the questions we keep coming up against is who should be building what in that ecosystem. We are looking to supply a platform with the belife that everybody u...
