  • HPC Tips & Tricks 5: Code modernisation - Two real world case studies and Intel tools for finding performance bottlenecks

    1 November 2018

    Elixir node event
    HPC Tips & Tricks 5: Code modernisation - Two real world case studies and Intel tools for finding performance bottlenecks https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hpc-tips-tricks-5-code-modernisation-two-real-world-case-studies-and-intel-tools-for-finding-performance-bottlenecks Code modernisation is about (re)writing code with the purpose of making optimal use of today’s (and tomorrow’s) computers. While a suboptimal computational performance of a code running on your desktop may be acceptable because it affects only you, codes running on HPC systems costing 1 M€ or more which use only a fraction of the machine capacity cannot be allowed. This Tips and Tricks session starts out with a short review of important aspects of computer architecture affecting performance and continues to show how to determine the performance of a code, by means of simple back-of-the envelope-calculations, as well as using sophisticated tools from the Intel Cluster Studio, such as Intel Advisor and Intel VTune. We demonstrate how to these tools can discover hot spots and their causes. We will examine some frequent causes of bad performance by studying two common scientific problems, the simulation of atomistic systems in a Monte Carlo setting, and in a Molecular Dynamics setting. Surprisingly, the most frequent cause of bad performance turns out to be the way how data are accessed, rather than algorithmic complexity or how many instructions your need to solve the problem. We will demonstrate how space filling curves like the Hilbert curve provide an efficient solution for fixing bad data access patterns in the simulation of atomistic systems (among other applications). This talk also touches upon arguments for choosing between (or combining) different programming languages (Fortran, C/C++, Python) for high performance computing.

  • Python for HPC

    1 October 2018

    Heverlee, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Python for HPC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/python-for-hpc Python is making inroads into the HPC landscape. However, writing Python code for efficient scientific computing is not entirely trivial. In this course a variety of techniques and libraries will be discussed that are useful in this context. Subjects covered include profiling of code to discover opportunities for optimization, using Cython, a Python extension that translate critical code sections into efficient C,wrapping C/C++/Fortran libraries in Python, multithreaded/multiprocess Python, distributed programming use mpi4py, and pySpark for data science.
