We use the XSBench proxy application, a memory-intensive OpenMP program, to explore the source of on-node scalability degradation of a popular Monte Carlo (MC) reactor physics benchmark on non-uniform memory access (NUMA) systems. As background, we present the details of XSBench, a performance abstraction "proxy app" for the full MC simulation, as well as the internal design of the Linux kernel. We explain how the physical memory allocation inside the kernel affects the multicore scalability ofarXiv:1909.03632v1 fatcat:tlg5i6pxg5f3lfgvwwhearbwqu
