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.”

The State of the Lustre Community

Brent Gorda, GM, Intel High Performance Data Division

Another year has passed and, with it, more growth for Lustre and the community around it. This year, as well as welcoming many new HPC sites to the community, we also delight in the evidence of activity from non-traditional Lustre sites and users.
