Threads vs. Watts

So I have been testing, again.

My hapless test subject this time is a Dell Box, an R630.

It has a comfortable 384GB of memory, one of two 25 GBit/s ports active, and it comes with two E5-2690v4 CPUs. That gives it 14 cores per die, 28 cores in total, or with hyperthreading, 56 threads.

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep 'model name' | uniq -c
56 model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2690 v4 @ 2.60GHz
$ ./mprime -v

Mandatory solar panels for new homes

Short link to NBC Miami:

South Miami Set to Become First City in Florida to Require Solar Panels on New Homes

The new law would require owners of new homes — including single-family homes, townhouses and multi-story residential buildings — to install solar panels. It also applies to owners who expand their homes by 75% or greater.

Once the measure is passed, South Miami would become the fourth U.S. city that requires new homes to be installed with solar panels. San Francisco and two small cities in California have similar renewable energy building laws.
