Dear users, 

​do you mean the performance  is dropped  

Or the thread number is not right one?
Number of cores: 6
Number of threads: 12  (MKL may only use the physical cpu threads by default)

​Could you please tell how do you  run w_mklb_p_2018.2.010.zip as 12 Thread or as 5, 9,10, 11,12 Threads?

Oh yes , I'm can tell to you this )
Easy I'm use Shell from LinX 0.6.5
https://yadi.sk/d/6U010N0r3akPaZ
If rewrite files in folder x64 from newest versions version run w_mklb_p_2018.2.010.zip . and run Linx.exe then press settings and set value in Number of threads as 5 , 7 , 9 , 10 ,11 , 12 ,13 , 14 o any other value will be error.

Include new MKLB

It’s a case of non-standard command line arguments usage.

Hi  Core, 

Do you mean the ./xlinpack_xeon64 don't use the thread you set in LinX environment,  the read color part in the image? 

I run under command line, it runs ok.   and about the threading, the main reason may be that : 

The Intel Optimized LINPACK Benchmark determines the optimal number of OpenMP threads to use. To run a different number, you can set the OMP_NUM_THREADS or MKL_NUM_THREADS environment variable inside a sample script. If you run the Intel Optimized LINPACK Benchmark without setting the number of threads, it defaults to the number of physical cores.

Best Regards,
Ying

Hovewer no.
I affirm what LinX after MKL 11.1.3.305 having errors. This errors be if use any quantity of flow which different from standard quantity of cores
This not fixed and now , this easy have.
So , LinX  not for correct tests , because have not fixed errors.

I don't think this is a problem with mkl but if this case affects your application, please submit the case into Intel Online Service Center and describe all technical details and business needs around this question.
