Hi Peter,

The benchmark is GradientBoostingTree of Intel HiBench [1].  HiBench is a 
suite of programs using Hadoop or Spark, and GradientBoostingTree is a 
Spark program.  The source code (in Scala) is [2].  To build the code, you 
need Apache Spark.

The command line is equivalent to java -Xmx10g -D spark.master="local[4]" 
GradientBoostingTree <inputDir> 100, but what I actually use is a Java 
program that calls the main method and measures its execution time using 

By the way, I'm running the benchmark on POWER8 machine.  Removing 
volatile won't change the performance on x86.
