“The Cray-Seagate partnership is helping expand the boundaries of what’s possible in large-scale, data-intensive computing, far beyond what we could have imagined just 10 years ago. This continued innovation using the Lustre open file system is helping assist data-intense applications critical to advancements in important industries around the world.”

Video: Shared File Performance in Lustre – Challenges and Solutions

Patrick Farrell

“Large scale HPC IO is usually done either with a file per process or to a single shared file. Single shared file IO does not scale well in Lustre compared to file per process. This presentation from Cray’s Patrick Farrell will give details, examine the reasons for this, and explore existing and potential solutions. Group locks and a new feature, lock ahead, will be discussed in the context of strided IO.”
