June 22: This course has been cancelled.
May 14: This course will be provided as ONLINE course (using Zoom).
In this workshop, users can apply the know-how gained from the node-level performance engineering course (which takes place from Monday to Wednesday of the very same week) while being assisted by HLRS, HPE and AMD staff as well as one of the instructors of the node-level performance engineering course. By means of this assistance, it's not only possible to enhance the node-level performance but also the 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 as well as an instructor of the node-level performance engineering course) with their machine expertise.
Target audience: Groups holding a compute time budget to be used on Hawk.
Supported by HLRS, HPE and AMD specialists as well as an instructor of the node-level performance engineering course, you will enhance the node-level performance and scaling of your code. In order to do so, you will analyze the runtime behavior, 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.
09:15-17:30 Optimization of your own applications 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.
