    Elixir node event
    MPI https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/mpi The Message Passing Interface is the de facto standard for distributed programming in a scientific context. It is implemented in libraries that can be used from C/C++/Fortran, although wrappers for other languages exist as well. To write efficient code, a thorough understanding of the semantics of the API is required, this course will emphasize potential performance hazards and pitfalls. The strengths and weaknesses of various MPI features are discussed. In several hands-on sessions, the participant has the opportunity to experiment. Parallel architectures and programming models MPI overview MPI programming model Messages and point-to-point communication Non-blocking communication Derived data types Virtual topologies Collective communication MPI-2 overview MPI-2 one-sided communication Parallel debugging MPI-2 parallel file MPI-3 overview This MPI-course covers the full MPI-3 standard.

  • HPC Tips & Tricks: Code modernisation & optimization - Real world case studies and Intel and Allinea tools for finding performance bottleneck

    24 March 2017

    Heverlee, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    HPC Tips & Tricks: Code modernisation & optimization - Real world case studies and Intel and Allinea tools for finding performance bottleneck https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hpc-tips-tricks-code-modernisation-optimization-real-world-case-studies-and-intel-and-allinea-tools-for-finding-performance-bottleneck 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, Intel VTune and Allinea MAP. 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.

  • GPU programming opportunities and challenges: a case study in finite element analysis

    5 August 2017

    Heverlee, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    GPU programming opportunities and challenges: a case study in finite element analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/gpu-programming-opportunities-and-challenges-a-case-study-in-finite-element-analysis GPUs have become an increasingly popular general computing platform. However, their efficient utilization requires some understanding of the architecture and programming model. A sensible question arises about their applicability in terms of the necessary time investment versus the added scientific value. An introduction on the basics of GPGPUs is presented first, including the architecture, the computing model and a general methodology for parallelizing an algorithm. Opportunities and pitfalls are then elucidated with basic examples of problems/implementations suited or unsuited for GPUs. Assessing a problem for its applicability to GPUs is shown as a key decision-making step. The seminar is not only envisioned as an introduction to GPU programming; key concepts are elucidated specifically on a concrete case of Finite Element (FE) algorithm parallelization. Concepts such as problem-breakdown, testing, verification, profiling and optimization are presented through the FE algorithm's implementation. Overall, a realistic assessment of adopting GPU computation (and everything it can entail) is provided through the lens of added scientific value.
