In this video from the 2014 HPC Advisory Council Europe Conference, Rich Graham from Mellanox presents: Scalable HPC Communication Capabilities.
“This talk will focus on latest developments and future plans for the MVAPICH2 and MVAPICH2-X projects. For the MVAPICH2 project, we will focus on scalable and highly-optimized designs for pt-to-pt communication (two-sided and one-sided MPI-3 RMA), collective communication (blocking and MPI-3 non-blocking), support for GPGPUs and Intel MIC, support for MPI-T interface and schemes for fault-tolerance/fault-resilience. For the MVAPICH2-X project, will focus on efficient support for hybrid MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming model with unified runtime.”
“Today’s data center managers are burdened by a lack of aligned information of multiple layers. Work-flow events like ‘job starts’ aligned with performance metrics and events extracted from log facilities are low-hanging fruit that is on the edge to become use-able due to open-source software like Graphite, StatsD, logstash and alike. This talk aims to show off the benefits of merging multiple layers of information within an InfiniBand cluster by using use-cases for level 1/2/3 personnel.”
In this video from the OpenFabrics International Developer Workshop 2014, Brian Hausauer from Intel presents an iWARP Update. “The Internet Wide Area RDMA Protocol (iWARP) is a computer networking protocol for transferring data efficiently. It is sometimes referred to simply as “RDMA”, though RDMA is not a feature exclusive to iWARP.”
