In this video from the PASC16 conference, Andrew Lumsdaine from Indiana University presents: Context Matters: Distributed Graph Algorithms and Runtime Systems. “The increasing complexity of the software/hardware stack of modern supercomputers makes understanding the performance of the modern massive-scale codes difficult. Distributed graph algorithms (DGAs) are at the forefront of that complexity, pushing the envelope with their massive irregularity and data dependency. We analyze the existing body of research on DGAs to assess how technical contributions are linked to experimental performance results in the field. We distinguish algorithm-level contributions related to graph problems from “runtime-level” concerns related to communication, scheduling, and other low-level features necessary to make distributed algorithms work. We show that the runtime is an integral part of DGAs’ experimental results, but it is often ignored by the authors in favor of algorithm-level contributions.”
“The June 2016 Irish Supercomputer List represents a seismic shake-up in the Irish HPC landscape. After a 2015 that saw only three new machines, the list has experienced a turnover of over 50% with three new Top500-class machines topping the list. High Performance Computing is alive and well in Ireland, with a combined national HPC output of over 1 Petaflop. On the global stage, Ireland is now at the envious position of being #2 in the world in terms of Top500 supercomputers per capita.”

The SGI Management Suite’s system health monitoring and management capability collects health status information on fundamental system’s functions such as memory, CPU and power. It identifies changes that require action, automatically alerts the system administrator, and provides proactive solutions to correct the problem.
In this video from ISC 2016, Figen Ulgen from Intel describes the new Intel HPC Orchestrator. “Intel HPC Orchestrator simplifies the installation, management and ongoing maintenance of a high-performance computing system by reducing the amount of integration and validation effort required for the HPC system software stack. Intel HPC Orchestrator can help accelerate your time to results and value in your HPC initiatives. With Intel HPC Orchestrator, based on the OpenHPC system software stack, you can take advantage of the innovation driven by the open source community – while also getting peace of mind from Intel support across the stack.”
In this video from ISC 2016, Dr. Eng Lim Goh from SGI discusses the latest trends in high performance data analytics and machine learning. “Dr. Eng Lim Goh joined SGI in 1989, becoming a chief engineer in 1998 and then chief technology officer in 2000. He oversees technical computing programs with the goal to develop the next generation computer architecture for the new many-core era. His current research interest is in the progression from data intensive computing to analytics, machine learning, artificial specific to general intelligence and autonomous systems. Since joining SGI, he has continued his studies in human perception for user interfaces and virtual and augmented reality.”
