they are ok but we wanted something better, which would more clearly show de diff in using a single pc and the cluster.
i had prob with running de programs as they were compiling using mpcc n not mpicc
we are tryin 2 figure out de hpl config, its quite complicated, also de locate command lists lots of confusing results.
i think u are correct we may have installed openmpi without VT support, but is there anythin we can do now???
One more thing I found this program but dont know how to run it : http://www.cis.udel.edu/~pollock/367/manual/node35.html
Thanks 2 all u guys 4 putting in so much efforts to help us out.
