This week XSEDE announced a new set of software resources designed to ease tasks for campus system administrators.
The good folks at Advanced Clustering are hosting a webinar on Dec. 18 on the topic of eQUEUE, an intuitive web-based front-end job submission tool that automates job scripts to make HPC clusters accessible to those without specialized HPC training.
“Moab Task Manager is very valuable to customers who want drastically improved throughput on production clusters that have many small, short-lived, similar jobs,” said David Jackson, Adaptive Computing’s CTO and co-founder. “When pushing a high number of jobs through the system, Moab Task Manager works in unison with Moab to facilitate parallel job scheduling with larger, longer-running jobs.”
New innovations from Adaptive Computing include: Moab Task Manager, a localized decision-making tool within Moab’s HPC Suite that enables high-speed throughput on short computing jobs. Adaptive has also announced a partnership with Intel to integrate Moab/TORQUE workload management software with the Intel HPC Distribution for Apache Hadoop software, which combines the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software with the Intel Enterprise Edition of Lustre software.
Display Manager is a web-based environment for remote visualization of very Big Data arising from large HPC simulations. “Display Manager eliminates the need for massive data movement across networks by leveraging NVIDIA GRID GPU’s for server side remote visualization. This represents a major milestone in the path toward complete simulation lifecycle management.” Watch the demo to see it in action.
