Policy on Loaning Hardware


Recommended Posts

What's the policy of borrowing or loaning hardware?


Someone has offered to give me remote-login access to a number of systems including a dual Xeon E5-2696 V4 (Broadwell-EP with 44 cores/88 threads and 768 GB of memory).


The purpose of this is to do scalability tuning for y-cruncher. But I am also authorized to run and disclose benchmarks on this thing.


Would it be bad taste to submit benchmarks from hardware that I do not own?

Thanks. Though on second thought, I'm not sure if I'll be able to run any valid benchmarks on them. They're all running Windows 10, and I don't think I have permission to touch the bootcfg to turn on HPET.


Just have the "authorized" person do if for you before you log in. :)
