Respect Programming Models – Manage Intel® Xeon Phi™ in your Clusters for Enhanced User Experience

  • Overview
  • Resources

High performance computing (HPC) cluster programming model number 1 has been MPI for the past 10 or more years. The advent of coprocessors and accelerators forced many users to rethink their strategies and re-structure the code, even though a clever setup of Intel® Xeon Phi™ systems allows using them without being forced to do so. This webinar will present a number of techniques to help system administrators with their tasks.

  • Overview of Intel Xeon Phi programming techniques
  • Basic requirements to get Intel Xeon Phi running
  • How to mount cluster file systems on the Intel Xeon Phi
  • User integration
  • Use of startup scripts and their role in batch scheduling
  • Live demo

Benchmark results were obtained prior to the implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, see Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure.
