How can I activate Turbo Mode on the Nehalem processors of Juropa/HPC-FF?

Turbo Mode makes it possible to automatically overclock the cores under certain conditions (see: Intel Turbo Boost Technology). The standard frequency of 2.933 GHz can be increased to a maximum value of roughly 3.2 GHz.
The following command enables Turbo Mode on the cores of the reserved compute node:

msub -l nodes=1:ppn=8:turbomode

Information about the actually applied clock frequency can be obtained from the following file of the corresponding node:

/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu?/cpufreq/cpuinfo_max_freq
