A Merit Based Priority Scheme to Optimize the Use of Computing Infrastructure

Gowtham

“Following up on the “Streamlining Research Computing Infrastructure: A Small School’s Perspective”, this talk will discuss how a researcher’s priority in a shared HPC cluster is computed based on her/his usage pattern as well as productivity. Coupled with transparent functionality and reporting scheme at nearly every level, this merit based priority scheme has enabled consistently high usage (85+%) throughout 20 months of operation and has helped researchers at Michigan Technological University to produce 30+ publications from approximately 30 different projects.”

Video: Recent Developments in Cooling, Power Management, and Usability

CORAL (Collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne and Lawrence Livermore National Labs) is a project that was launched in 2013 to develop the technology and meet the Department of Energy’s 2017-2018 leadership computing needs with supercomputers. The collaboration between Mellanox, IBM and NVIDIA was selected by the CORAL project team after a comprehensive evaluation of future technologies from a variety of vendors. The development of these supercomputers is well underway with installation expected in 2017.
