Re: Limit on number of cores

Alex Granovsky


there is no limit on the number of cores in Firefly.

Could you please be a bit more specific? Do you mean the limitations
of the OS? You should upgrade to the Server 2008 Enterprise or use
Linux if so (note it is not allowed to discuss cracking etc... on this forum).
Alternatively, if you encounter some unexpected limitations running
Firefly, please provide more information. E.g., there do exist
some limitations in nt-mpich-smp implementation of MPI so you may
need to increase the size of the shared memory area e.g.:

set MPI_GLOBMEMSIZE=536870912

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
