Note: On March 10, this course was rescheduled to March 30 - April 03, 2020.
On March 13: We try to provide this course as online event. Due to Corona virus, no face-to-face teaching is allowed at the University of Stuttgart until April 19.
On March 30: Postponed
We will provide further information soon to the registered participants.
In this workshop, users can port their applications to HLRS’ new supercomputer Hawk (AMD-based HPE Apollo system, installed in early 2020) while being assisted by HLRS, HPE and AMD staff. By means of this assistance, it's further possible to enhance the node-level performance as well as scaling of the codes. By doing so, users can raise the quantity and/or quality of their scientific findings while the costs (in terms of core hours) remain constant.
In order to achieve usable performance enhancements, it is important to discuss pros and cons of potential solutions. This, however, requires application as well as machine expertise. Hence, this workshop brings together our users (with their application expertise) and support staff (HLRS, HPE and AMD staff) with their machine expertise.
Target audience: Groups holding a compute time budget to be used on Hawk.
Supported by HLRS and HPE specialists, you will port your application to the new supercomputer system “Hawk”. Furthermore, it’s possible to enhance the performance of the code. In order to do so, you will analyze the runtime behavior of your code, locate bottlenecks, design and discuss potential solutions as well as implement them. All categories of bottlenecks (CPU, memory subsystem, communication and I/O) can be addressed, according to the requirements of the code.
14:15-17:30 Porting and Optimizing of your own applications to/on Hawk
Important: If you plan to join the workshop, we recommend

HLRS is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in Feb. 2012.
HLRS is also member of the Baden-Württemberg initiative bwHPC-C5.
This course is provided within the framework of the bwHPC-C5 user support. This course is not part of the PATC curriculum and is not sponsored by the PATC program.
