Video: New and Improved Lustre Performance Monitoring Tool

torben

“With the current Lustre Performance Monitoring Tool (LMT) no longer in active development, and the current version incompatible with DNE based Lustre 2.5 deployments, there is a critical need for a new set of tools delivering the same basic Lustre performance metrics with the added ability to work compatibly with contemporary releases of Lustre.”

Video: Software Tools for Intel Xeon Phi Co-processors

In this video, Vadim Karpusenko from Colfax International describes the software tools for developing applications for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. The session begins with software that is necessary to boot coprocessors and to run pre-compiled executables on them.

Fast Matrix Multiply with OpenMP

Parallel

Solving many scientific and technical applications entails the use of matrix multiplies somewhere in the algorithm and thus the computer code. With today’s multicore CPUs, proper use of complier directives can speed up matrix multiplies significantly.

HPC and Software Modernization

Dr. Herbert Cornelius, Intel

“As we see Moore’s Law alive and well, more and more parallelism is introduced into all computing platforms and on all levels of integration and programming to achieve higher performance and energy efficiency. We will discuss Multi- and Many-Core solutions for highly parallel workloads with general purpose and energy efficient technologies. We will also touch on the challenges and opportunities for parallel programming models, methodologies and software tools to achieve highly efficient and highly productive parallel applications. At the end we will take a brief look towards Exascale computing.”

Video: High-Performance and Scalable Designs of Programming Models for Exascale Systems

DK Panda, Ohio State University

“This talk will focus on programming models and their designs for upcoming exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators. Current status and future trends of MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models will be presented. We will discuss challenges in designing runtime environments for these programming models by taking into account support for multi-core, high-performance networks, GPGPUs, Intel MIC, scalable collectives (multi-core-aware, topology-aware, and power-aware), non-blocking collectives using Offload framework, one-sided RMA operations, schemes and architectures for fault-tolerance/fault-resilience.”
