HMMER and T2000 (Niagara box)

I've been looking at HMMER (another frequently used bioinformatics application) performance on T2000. So far things look good -- good scaling, and pretty impressive performance when compared with other platforms. I will try and post some scaling results in the next day or so. Be sure to use the Sun compiler when compiling HMMER -- some pretty cool optimizations leveraging conditional moves to reduce the number of hard to predict conditional branches in hot loops...
