  • [ONLINE] Node-Level Performance Engineering @ LRZ

    2 - 4 December 2020

    [ONLINE] Node-Level Performance Engineering @ LRZ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-node-level-performance-engineering-lrz This online course covers performance engineering approaches on the compute node level. Even application developers who are fluent in OpenMP and MPI often lack a good grasp of how much performance could at best be achieved by their code. This is because parallelism takes us only half the way to good performance. Even worse, slow serial code tends to scale very well, hiding the fact that resources are wasted. This course conveys the required knowledge to develop a thorough understanding of the interactions between software and hardware. This process must start at the core, socket, and node level, where the code gets executed that does the actual computational work. We introduce the basic architectural features and bottlenecks of modern processors and compute nodes. Pipelining, SIMD, superscalarity, caches, memory interfaces, ccNUMA, etc., are covered. A cornerstone of node-level performance analysis is the Roofline model, which is introduced in due detail and applied to various examples from computational science. We also show how simple software tools can be used to acquire knowledge about the system, run code in a reproducible way, and validate hypotheses about resource consumption. Finally, once the architectural requirements of a code are understood and correlated with performance measurements, the potential benefit of code changes can often be predicted, replacing hope-for-the-best optimizations by a scientific process.   The course is a PRACE training event. Introduction Our approach to performance engineering Basic architecture of multicore systems: threads, cores, caches, sockets, memory The important role of system topology Tools: topology & affinity in multicore environments Overview likwid-topology and likwid-pin Microbenchmarking for architectural exploration Properties of data paths in the memory hierarchy Bottlenecks OpenMP barrier overhead Roofline model: basics Model assumptions and construction Simple examples Limitations of the Roofline model Pattern-based performance engineering Optimal use of parallel resources Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) Cache-coherent Non-Uniform Memory Architecture (ccNUMA) Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) Tools: hardware performance counters Why hardware performance counters? likwid-perfctr Validating performance models Roofline case studies Dense matrix-vector multiplication Sparse matrix-vector multiplication Jacobi (stencil) smoother Optional: The ECM performance model https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/1052/ 2020-12-02 08:00:00 UTC 2020-12-04 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own NGS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally perform their first downstream analysis (variant calling). In the course we will use a real-life NGS dataset from the current market leader illumina. All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this fast evolving research topic. The online course will make use of a web conferencing system. Hands-on NGS analysis will be performed in an interactive browser-based platform. Before the course, you will get a printed manuscript and a USB key by mail. 2020-12-09 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-11 17:00:00 UTC ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH Sequencing Sequence analysis Bioinformatics [] ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH Sternwartenstr. 29 D-04103 Leipzig Germany Email: events@ecSeq.com [] BiologistsMolecular BiologistsPathologistsBiologists, Genomicists, Computer Scientistspost-docsPhD studentsbioinformaticians 15 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served NGS bioinformaticsNGSVariant callingDNA-seq
