Hi All,

Is it possible to make use of OpenMP thread distribution and affinity for R on Xeon Phi? If yes, please share resources that can help understand how to optimize R for Xeon Phi.

Since, R code runs on R engine and doesn't go through the linking process, I am not sure how this will work out.

Any suggestion will help.

Thanks.

Here are interesting resources which may be helpful:
