    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

    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.

    HPC-lunchbox: worker and atools https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hpc-lunchbox-worker-and-atools In many scientific domains experiments are set up to explore parameter spaces. This type of workload can easily be parallelized since the individual computations are independent. However, a considerable amount of bookkeeping may be required to perform such experiments effectively.Two frameworks have been developed to make this type of task trivial.worker was developed in 2010, and has been improved over the years.atools is a recent development to accommodate use cases that worker is not optimal for.Both frameworks have a fairly large feature set, including monitoring of running jobs to keep track of the tasks that are completed/failed/pending, resuming interrupted tasks, merging output from the tasks, and so on.This lunchbox session will introduce you to these tools, and illustrate the more advanced features. You will also get tips on how to use the tools efficiently.

    Code Optimization https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/code-optimization Attention to the quality of code in terms of its computational efficiency is a rather important aspect of using HPC system effectively.In the introduction, we will cover how to quantify performance, and how to dimension computations to ensure optimal use of the compute resources. In order to write efficient scientific code, the developer should be familiar with a number of important aspects of modern CPU architecture.The impact of the NUMA memory architecture, vectorization and out-of-order execution will be discussed. The NUMA memory architecture also has its impact at the level of a compute node, while the interconnect properties will determine performance of distributed applications.Several tools will help the developer to profile his application to discover performance hot spots, and make informed decisions on how to improve the efficiency of the code, or the use of resources.
