The Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector 8.1 Update 2 for Linux* and Windows* is a low-overhead scalable event-tracing library with graphical analysis that reduces the time it takes an application developer to enable maximum performance of cluster applications. This package is for users who develop on and build for IA-32 and Intel® 64 architectures on Linux* and Windows*, as well as customers running on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor on Linux*. You must have a valid license to download, install and use this product.
The Intel® MPI Library for Linux* and Windows* is a high-performance interconnect-independent multi-fabric library implementation of the industry-standard Message Passing Interface, v2.2 (MPI-2.2) specification. This package is for MPI users who develop on and build for IA-32 and Intel® 64 architectures on Linux* and Windows*, as well as customers running on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor on Linux*. You must have a valid license to download, install and use this product.
The Linux Foundation is delivering a 4-day, hands-on training course that provides the knowledge and skills needed to successfully engineer, provision, maintain, and administer high-availability clusters to support mission-critical workloads. Heavily focused on mission critical workloads, High Availability Linux Architecture focuses on concepts and best practices used to meet security and high availability requirements using the latest hardware technologies such as Intel Xeon Processor E7 Family, driven by current open source tools found in the three main Linux distribution families.
BACKGROUND: A QUICK REFRESHER ON IDLE STATES
This is the second article in a series of articles about High Performance Computing with the Intel Xeon Phi. The Intel Xeon Phi is the first commercial product of Intel to incorporate the Many Integrated Core architecture. In this article I will present various frameworks for unleashing the power of multiple threads on the Xeon Phi. We will also have a look at interesting properties and advantages / disadvantages of each framework.
The Intel® MPI Library offers many configuration options for improving application performance on your cluster. The number of options can be daunting to a new user. To assist with this, the Automatic Tuning utility is provided. This allows you to tune runtime parameters to match your system and your applications. In this webinar, I will introduce the tuner and provide use cases to begin using it for your cluster and applications.
What is DAPL UD?
Traditional InfiniBand* support involves MPI message transfer over the Reliable Connection (RC) protocol. While RC is long-standing and rich in functionality, it does have certain drawbacks: since it requires that each pair of processes setup a one-to-one connection at the start of the execution, memory consumption could (at the worst case) grow linearly as more MPI ranks are added and the number of pair connections grows.
