Hyper-threaded Cores and HPC Scheduling RRS feed

  • Question

  • When creating an HPC SOA session and specifying the resource units as cores, HPC counts hyper-threaded cores the same as "real" cores. Is there a mechanism to tell HPC to ignore the hyper-threaded cores and ony use the actual cores for allocating resources?

  • 2 ideas here,

    1. If you can, turn off hyper threading in bios. And HPC can handle it correctly.

    2. Schedule your HPC SOA session on socket level (jobunittype = socket), and mark the max concurrency call number to 1.
