Hi.   Not sure if you can use all cores.   It has been and still is my
experience that SM is crap.   We have several SM gpu and SM/Calxeda  Arm
clusters and they really lack in may ways from ipmi to chassis management
to the corners they cut with the processor to memory mappings.

I would consider looking at SGI UV,  ultraviolet system for a fat node type
system but they are not cheap.   We have plenty of those and they can build
it the way you want.   Lead time is a couple of months due to build  to
order.   Support from SM sucks too.     :)
