The machines have these specifications:
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2609 0 @ 2.40GHz (2393 MHZ) 10240 KB Cache 129022 MB main memory # Software: OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.2 (Maipo) kernel: 3.10.0-514.16.1.el7.x86_64 glibc: gcc-4.8.5-4.el7.x86_64 glibc-2.17-157.el7_3.1.i686
A StarExec virtual machine image is available here.
The machines have 2 processors each and 4 cores per processor. For the competition, two job-pairs will be run on a given machine at a given time (one on each processor, with 4 cores available), and the available memory will be capped at 61440 MB.
We reserve the right to make software and configuration changes before the competition. Please exercise your solver(s) on a few benchmarks to ensure that they run successfully!
