Don’t Play MacGyver With Your Data Center Cluster

Dr. Matthijs van Leeuwen, Founder and CEO of Bright Computing

MacGyver is a character famous for getting out of tough situations by coming up with a makeshift solution from whatever bits and pieces he found laying around. That’s no way to manage a critical part of your organization’s infrastructure.

Monitoring and Management Interfaces for GPU Devices in a Cluster Environment

“This presentation will provide an overview of the Nvidia Tesla Deployment Kit (TDK) from a user and a system administrator point of view. TDL contains Nvidia Management Library (NVML) and nvidia-healthmon–a tool for detecting and troubleshooting known GPU issues in a cluster environment. Usage models within a cluster environment will be presented along with a discussion on how existing resource management tools can be extended to improve allocation and accounting of GPU resources.”

Wisconsin-based Convergent Science, Inc. (CSI) is well-known for their advanced CFD software. As their development teams focus on speed, precision, and simplifying their workflows, the company says that debugging their code with Allinea DDT is providing a competitive advantage.

Creating Mobile to HPC Applications using a Single Source Tree

Rob Farber

Rob Farber writes that pragma-based programming standards like OpenACC (and potentially OpenMP 4.0) move us closer to the single-source tree ideal by providing a mechanism to annotate code to run efficiently on serial and parallel.
