- You should compile your multiprocessor C++ code with c++ -pthread -std=c++11 -O2 your_file.cxx ee155_utils.cxx
- You can use any Linux box in JCC 074 to debug your C++-threads homeworks (i.e., Lab1-Lab3). Before you collect benchmark data, you should reboot the machine to ensure a consistent environment. Please do not use any other machines; this will make your numbers much less meaningful.
- Labs 4 and 5 use a GPGPU.
We do not support GPUs on Linux machines; instead, you'll use the Tufts high-performance compute cluster for your GPU homeworks.
