Distributed asci supercomputer 1

Distributed ASCI Supercomputer (1)

  • Shared testbed for research on parallel and distributed computing

    • Set up by ASCI research school in 1997

    • Geographically distributed cluster-based system

    • 4 clusters with 200 nodes in total

    • Homogeneous (same processors,network, OS)

  • Opening workshop: 2 March 1998

    • Carl Kesselman, Andrew Grimshaw


Second testbed das 2

Second testbed: DAS-2

  • ASCI obtained funding from N.W.O. in June 2000

  • ASCI committee to do detailed design and selection

    • Henri Bal, Bob Hertzberger, Henk Sips, Lex Wolters,Aad van der Steen, Cees de Laat

  • Decisions

    • Homogeneous architecture

    • Nodes: dual Pentium-IIIs (SMPs)

    • Network: Myrinet + Ethernet (OS)

    • OS (Linux)

    • Vendor (IBM), configuration, ….

  • Installation by IBM: November 2001

Das 2 application performance

DAS-2 Application performance

  • Case study: endgame databases for Awari

  • 1995 (Bal & Allis, Supercomputing’95):

    • Computed database with 5 108 entries on 80-node MicroSparc cluster (predecessor of DAS-1)

  • 2002 (Romein & Bal):

    • See how far we get on DAS-2 towards solving the entire game (9  1012 entries) ….
