I have just got my Xeon Phi 7210 up and running with Ubuntu 16.04 HWE server, but I have a feeling that it is not the right choice.
I managed to run a job on 128 hyper threads, but 256 fails with insufficient cores.
My first attempt to run ubuntu desktop was not a success - it was running but annoing to work with.
Is there a prefered OS for perfomance and/or easy of use/setup? Should I only install a CLI version or is it possible to install a workstation version without degrading performance?
