FlashMob Scoreboard

This release of the FlashMob software is designed as a proof-of-concept to confirm that the software works and on a variety of hardware. We are interested in any performance numbers you get from running the software on a single node or across multiple nodes.

In the very near future, we will make releases that attempt to maximize the best Gflop number. Stay tuned!
