Proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on Parallel Tools for High Performance Computing, October 2016, Stuttgart, Germany.
Editors: Niethammer, C., Gracia, J., Hilbrich, T., Knüpfer, A., Resch, M.M., Nagel, W.E. (Eds.)

This book presents the proceedings of the 10th International Parallel Tools Workshop, held October 4-5, 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany – a forum to discuss the latest advances in parallel tools.

High-performance computing plays an increasingly important role for numerical simulation and modelling in academic and industrial research. At the same time, using large-scale parallel systems efficiently is becoming more difficult. A number of tools addressing parallel program development and analysis have emerged from the high-performance computing community over the last decade, and what may have started as collection of small helper script has now matured to production-grade frameworks. Powerful user interfaces and an extensive body of documentation allow easy usage by non-specialists.

The Science and Art of Simulation I: Exploring - Understanding - Knowing

Editors: Resch, Michael, Kaminski, Andreas, Gehring, Petra (Eds.)

The new book series “The Science and Art of Simulation” (SAS) addresses computer simulations as a scientific activity and engineering artistry (in the sense of a technē). The first volume is devoted to three topics:

  1. The Art of Exploring Computer Simulations Philosophy began devoting attention to computer simulations at a relatively early stage. Since then, the unquestioned point of view has been that computer simulation is a new scientific method; the philosophy of simulation is therefore part of the philosophy of science. The first section of this volume discusses this implicit, unchallenged assumption by addressing, from different perspectives, the question of how to explore (and how not to explore) research on computer simulations. Scientists discuss what is still lacking or considered problematic, while philosophers draft new directions for research, and both examine the art of exploring computer simulations.
  2. The Art of Understanding Computer Simulations The results of computer simulations are integrated into both political and social decisions. It is implicitly assumed that the more detailed, and consequently more realistic, a computer simulation is, the more useful it will be in decision-making. However, this idea is by no means justified. Different types of computer simulations have to be differentiated, which in turn requires the specific skill of understanding computer simulation results. The articles in this section examine the capabilities and limits of simulation results in political and social contexts, exploring the art of understanding computer simulation results.
  3. The Art of Knowing through Computer Simulations? The advent of computer simulation in today’s scientific practices challenges the order of science. What kind of knowledge is gained through computer simulations is the key question in this section. Computer simulations are often compared to experiments or to arguments, and the transformation of our traditional scientific notions might be more challenging than expected – these Ideas are put forward in the third section to conceptualize the art of knowing through computer simulations.

Editors: Knüpfer, A., Hilbrich, T., Niethammer, C., Gracia, J., Nagel, W.E., Resch, M.M. (Eds.)

High Performance Computing (HPC) remains a driver that offers huge potentials and benefits for science and society. However, a profound understanding of the computational matters and specialized software is needed to arrive at effective and efficient simulations. Dedicated software tools are important parts of the HPC software landscape, and support application developers. Even though a tool is by definition not a part of an application, but rather a supplemental piece of software, it can make a fundamental difference during the development of an application. Such tools aid application developers in the context of debugging, performance analysis, and code optimization, and therefore make a major contribution to the development of robust and efficient parallel software.
This book introduces a selection of the tools presented and discussed at the 9th International Parallel Tools Workshop held in Dresden, Germany, September 2-3, 2015, which offered an established forum for discussing the latest advances in parallel tools.

Editors: Knüpfer, A., Gracia, J., Nagel, W. E., Resch, M. M., Niethammer, C. (Eds.)

Numerical simulation and modelling using High Performance Computing has evolved into an established technique in academic and industrial research. At the same time, the High Performance Computing infrastructure is becoming ever more complex. For instance, most of the current top systems around the world use thousands of nodes in which classical CPUs are combined with accelerator cards in order to enhance their compute power and energy efficiency. This complexity can only be mastered with adequate development and optimization tools. Key topics addressed by these tools include parallelization on heterogeneous systems, performance optimization for CPUs and accelerators, debugging of increasingly complex scientific applications and optimization of energy usage in the spirit of green IT. This book represents the proceedings of the 8th International Parallel Tools Workshop, held October 1.-2., 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany – which is a forum to discuss the latest advancements in the parallel tools.

Editors: Knüpfer, A., Gracia, J., Nagel, W.E., Resch, M.M. (Eds.)

Current advances in High Performance Computing (HPC) increasingly impact efficient software development workflows. Programmers for HPC applications need to consider trends such as increased core counts, multiple levels of parallelism, reduced memory per core, and I/O system challenges in order to derive well performing and highly scalable codes. At the same time, the increasing complexity adds further sources of program defects. While novel programming paradigms and advanced system libraries provide solutions for some of these challenges, appropriate supporting tools are indispensable. Such tools aid application developers in debugging, performance analysis, or code optimization and therefore make a major contribution to the development of robust and efficient parallel software. This book introduces a selection of the tools presented and discussed at the 7th International Parallel Tools Workshop, held in Dresden, Germany, September 3-4, 2013.

The latest advances in the High Performance Computing hardware have significantly raised the level of available compute performance. At the same time, the growing hardware capabilities of modern supercomputing architectures have caused an increasing complexity of the parallel application development. Despite numerous efforts to improve and simplify parallel programming, there is still a lot of manual debugging and tuning work required. This process is supported by special software tools, facilitating debugging, performance analysis, and optimization and thus making a major contribution to the development of robust and efficient parallel software. This book introduces a selection of the tools, which were presented and discussed at the 6th International Parallel Tools Workshop, held in Stuttgart, Germany, 25-26 September 2012.

The proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Parallel Tools for High Performance Computing provide an overview on supportive software tools and environments in the fields of System Management, Parallel Debugging and Performance Analysis. In the pursuit to maintain exponential growth for the performance of high performance computers the HPC community is currently targeting Exascale Systems. The initial planning for Exascale already started when the first Petaflop system was delivered. Many challenges need to be addressed to reach the necessary performance. Scalability, energy efficiency and fault-tolerance need to be increased by orders of magnitude. The goal can only be achieved when advanced hardware is combined with a suitable software stack. In fact, the importance of software is rapidly growing. As a result, many international projects focus on the necessary software.

As more and more hardware platforms support parallelism, parallel programming is gaining momentum. Applications can only leverage the performance of multi-core processors or graphics processing units if they are able to split a problem into smaller ones that can be solved in parallel. The challenges emerging from the development of parallel applications have led to the development of a great number of tools for debugging, performance analysis and other tasks. The proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop on Parallel Tools for High Performance Computing provide a technical overview in order to help engineers, developers and computer scientists decide which tools are best suited to enhancing their current development processes.

The discussions and plans on all scientific, advisory, and political levels to realize an even larger “European Supercomputer” in Germany, where the hardware costs alone will be hundreds of millions of Euros – much more than in the past – are getting closer to realization. As part of the strategy, the three national supercomputing Jülich) and LRZ (Munich) have formed the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) as a new virtual organization enabled by an agreement between the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the state ministries for research of Baden-Württemberg, Bayern, and Nordrhein-Westfalen. Already today, the GCS provides the most powerful high-performance computing - frastructure in Europe. Through GCS, HLRS participates in the European project PRACE (Partnership for Advances Computing in Europe) and - tends its reach to all European member countries. These activities aligns well with the activities of HLRS in the European HPC infrastructure project DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Appli- tions) and in the European HPC support project HPC-Europa. Beyond that, HLRS and its partners in the GCS have agreed on a common strategy for the installation of the next generation of leading edge HPC hardware over the next five years. The University of Stuttgart and the University of Karlsruhe have furthermore agreed to bundle their competences and resources.

Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Parallel Tools for High Performance Computing, July 2008, HLRS, Stuttgart
Editors: Keller, R., Himmler, V., Krammer, B., Schulz, A. (Eds.)

With the advent of multi-core processors, implementing parallel programming methods in application development is absolutely necessary in order to achieve good performance. Soon, 8-core and possibly 16-core processors will be available, even for desktop machines. To support application developers in the various tasks involved in this process, several different tools need to be at his or her disposal. This workshop will give the users an overview of the existing tools in the area of integrated development environments for clusters, various parallel debuggers, and new-style performance analysis tools, as well as an update on the state of the art of long-term research tools, which have advanced to an industrial level. The proceedings of the 2nd Parallel Tools Workshop guide participants by providing a technical overview to help them decide upon which tool suits the requirements for the development task at hand. Additionally, through the hands-on sessions, the workshop will enable the user to immediately deploy the tools.

The last two years have been great for high performance computing in Baden-Württemberg and beyond. In July 2005, the new building for HLRS as well as Stuttgart’s new NEC supercomputer – which is still leading edge in Germany – have been inaugurated. In these days, the SCC Karlsruhe is initializing the installation of a very large high performance system complex from HP, built from hundreds of Intel Itanium processors and more than three thousand AMD Opteron cores. Additionally, the fast network connection – with a bandwidth of 40Gbit/s and thus one of the first installations of this kind in Germany – brings the machine rooms of HLRS and SCC Karlsruhe very close together. With the investment of more than 60 Million Euro, we – as the users of such a valuable infrastructure – are not only thankful to science managers and politicians, but also to the people running these components as part of their daily business, on a 24/7 level. Since about 18 months, there are lots of activities on all scientific, advisory, and political levels to decide if Germany will install an even larger European supercomputer, where the hardware costs alone will be around 200 Million Euro for a five year period. There are many good reasons to invest in such a program because – beyond the infrastructure – such a scientific research tool will attract the best brains to tackle the problems related to the software and methodology challenges.

In March 2005 about 40 scientists from Europe, Japan and the US came together the second time to discuss ways to achieve sustained performance on superc- puters in the range of Tera?ops. The workshop held at the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) was the second of this kind. The ?rst one had been held in May 2004. At both workshops hardware and software issues were presented and applications were discussed that have the potential to scale and achieve a very high level of sustained performance. The workshops are part of a collaboration formed to bring to life a concept that was developed in 2000 at HLRS and called the “Tera?op Workbench”. The purpose of the collaboration into which HLRS and NEC entered in 2004 was to turn this concept into a real tool for scientists and engineers. Two main goals were set out by both partners:

  • To show for a variety of applications from different fields that a sustained level of performance in the range of several Teraflops is possible.
  • To show that different platforms (vector based systems, cluster systems) can be coupled to create a hybrid supercomputer system from which applications can harness an even higher level of sustained performance.
