Presentation

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 Programming languages have been rapidly adding GPU offloading extensions in the last few years. Programmers targeting NVIDIA GPUs currently have a choice between CUDA, OpenMP 4.x, and OpenACC. Programming in CUDA C/C++ provides low-level access to the capabilities of...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 The presentation will demonstrate practical how-to examples of adding tools/scripts to the Open Power Petitboot boot loader for system bringup and debug. The Petitboot environment offers a rich set of tools that can be leveraged to solve many common bringup...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 The IBM Software Development Kit for Linux on Power (SDK) is a free, Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which integrates C/C++ source development with the Advance Toolchain, Post-Link Optimization, and classic Linux performance analysis tools, including Oprofile, Perf and...

Abstract This presentation will include an overview of the power, thermal, and performance data that can be collected from OpenPOWER servers via various methods, including a newly open sourced profiling tool called AMESTER.   The power/performance knobs, such as processor frequency, that are under the control...

Abstract As the algorithms for scientific applications are becoming more complex, higher computing power and better parallel approaches are demanded to achieve satisfying performance. As a consequence, supercomputers are increasingly adopted to provide huge computing power by deploying thousands of computing units. However, while the computing...

Abstract The OpenPOWER system software stack is responsible for system boot, platform abstractions and runtime management tasks. Based on Linux and the OPAL runtime firmware, we provide an industry-standard operating system interface to the unique hardware functionality of OpenPOWER platforms. We'll be focussing on areas which are...

Abstract Born out of the collaboration spirit fostered by the OpenPOWER Foundation, IBM along with partner support, like NVIDIA and Mellanox, has established complementary POWER Acceleration and Design Centers (PADC), in France, German and UK.To advance the development of data-intensive and High Performance Computing research, industrial...

Abstract The exploitation of general-purpose computing on a heterogeneous parallel system proves to be highly efficient for running several technical computing workloads.  This approach can also apply to a wide range of workloads, such as chemistry, bioinformatics, molecular biology, engineering, and big data analytics.  The Power...

Abstract We have been running an OpenPOWER cloud "SuperVessel" with thousands of docker instances in the last 2 years, we never stopped optimizing and tuning the container service from different layers: hardware configuration, operating system, docker, nova-docker, etc. A number of the issues have been resolved...
