ncsa resource updates
NCSA Resource updates
  • Cobalt
    • CXFS update
  • Lincoln
    • production since mid-March
    • final configuration
      • 192 compute nodes
        • Dell PE 1950iii dual, quad-core Harpertown
        • 16GB memory
      • 96 S1070 Tesla units from NVIDIA
        • double precision support
        • ~345 GF peak double precision per S1070
        • ~2 TF peak single precision per S1070

“Using Replica Exchange MD effectively allows use of the entire Lincoln cluster - and at this point, 96 nodes of Lincoln (48 Tesla units) is equivalent to 50 frames of BG/L… the machine not only is a useful resource, but it also provides an inspiration to think about large scale MD simulations and how to exploit parallelism very differently. We now have several ideas on the table that may help to attack "impossible" problems in the future.”

-- Axel Kohlmeyer, U of Pennsylvania

storage updates
Storage Updates
  • Lustre-WAN from Indiana mounted
    • mounted in 2 of 4 login nodes on Abe for testing
    • after another 2weeks of good testing, will mount on all 4 login nodes
  • Uberftp
    • released bug fixed and large feature release
      • recursive directory support for all commands
  • Uberfs released
    • sshand all other off the shelf data transfer supported
      • filezilla, rcp for archive system
  • CI Tutor very active:
    • 1250 enrollments in the 24 courses offered during the first quarter of 2009
  • Several CI-Tutor tutorials in progress
    • “Getting Started on the TeraGrid”
      • finishing up
    • “Introduction to accelerator technologies”
      • started developing short tutorial
    • “Using BigSim to Simulate PetaflopsComputers”
      • almost completed
      • Blue Waters item which could also have some usefulness for the TeraGrid
  • TG’09 involvement
    • SandieKappes giving presentation on CI-Tutor
    • MasoudSadjadi(FIU) giving on talk on his pathways fellowship that uses CI-Tutor
      • finding it very useful for his course in conjunction with providing access to the UI's Elluminate web-conferencing software to conduct his class
    • Galen Arnold will give short presentation on student day on how to setup a software environment with MPI, OpenMP, etc on a desktop/laptop that can be used to run the code given in the exercises within CI-Tutor
      • will also add an area within CI-Tutor with the information
successful deployment and test for gateway user count at ncsa
Successful Deployment and Test for Gateway User Count at NCSA
  • Science Gateways Capability Kit deployed on Abe and Mercury
  • GISolve Gateway submitted test jobs with attributes to Abe
  • Integration with AMIE accounting process underway
