Video: Applications Performance Optimizations – Best Practices

Pak Lui

“To achieve good scalability performance on the HPC scientific applications typically involves good understanding of the workload though performing profile analysis, and comparing behaviors of using different hardware which pinpoint bottlenecks in different areas of the HPC cluster. In this session, a selection of HPC applications will be shown to demonstrate various methods of profiling and analysis to determine the bottleneck, and the effectiveness of the tuning to improve on the application performance.”

Video: Datacenter Computers – Modern Challenges in CPU Design

Dick Sites, Senior Staff Engineer at Google

“Computers used as datacenter servers have usage patterns that differ substantially from those of desktop or laptop computers. We discuss four key differences in usage and their first-order implications for designing computers that are particularly well-suited as servers: data movement, thousands of transactions per second, program isolation, and measurement underpinnings. Maintaining high-bandwidth data movement requires coordinated design decisions throughout the memory system, instruction-issue system, and even instruction set.”

“The CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN underwent a replacement of its data acquisition network to be able to process the increased data rate expected in the coming years. We will present the architecture of the system and discuss the design of its layers which are based on Infiniband as well as 10 and 40 GBit/s Ethernet.”
