The big question is, at what level does the virtualization occur? Do you duplicate the whole file system and OS, even emulate the HW, or just try to isolate files and processes in the same OS.
Today, following on to Lecture 23, we'll run some more Intel tutorials. Students with their laptops are encouraged to participate.
Setting things up in your home dir (or whereever):
- mkdir samples; cd samples
- source /parallel-class/mic/setup
For each sample,
- Get the tarball into your dir with wget. (I copied some tarballs into /opt/intel/samples/ ).
- Unpack it.
- cd into the subdir
- Browse readme.html and follow it.
Here are the samples.
