In this 4-hour course led by an instructor the attendants will learn how to integrate intel Xeon Phi coprocessors into a cluster. Each attendant will connect via ssh to a cluster, and be able to run all necessary commands alongside the presentation.

Title:: Intel® Xeon Phi™ Cluster Integration – A hands-on Introduction
Date: Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Time: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT

What will be covered, in greater detail:

In this 4-hour course led by an instructor the attendants will learn how to integrate Xeon Phi coprocessors into a cluster. The session will include:

Each attendant will connect via ssh to a cluster, and be able to run all necessary commands alongside the presentation.

  • Discussion on prerequisites of the compute server (for instance what software needs to be installed, reserved IP addresses, user names, network file systems)
  • Unpacking the driver software package, explanation of components
  • Basic concepts (host, host OS, host kernel, coprocessor, MPSS stack, layout of MPSS files, boot image of the uOS, ramfs of the uOS)
  • Recompiling HOST kernel packages; diagnose output and understand errors (necessary to work with nonstandard kernels)
  • Install a minimal set of MPSS rpm packages using rpm
  • Create a default MPSS configuration (using “micctrl --initdefaults “)
  • Startup (aka boot) the coprocessor
  • Connect via minicom to the coprocessor (this allows one to connect to the Xeon Phi WITHOUT figuring out network problems)
  • modify uOS filesystem by overlaying an /etc/passwd file
  • Create a bridgded network on the host
  • Configure the coprocessor for bridged networking by modifying micX.conf directly
  • Reboot card and connect via ssh
  • Set up a ssh key-pair; diagnose ssh gotchas
  • Mount a NFS file system on the coprocessor
  • Configure a user known in the cluster by modifying the /etc/passwd file of the coprocessor
  • Group up with neighbor – run MPI benchmark natively over Ethernet
  • Recompile the MPSS OFED package to support a nonstandard kernel on the HOST
  • Install MPSS-OFED rpms
  • Start OFED on the coprocessor
  • Group up with neighbor – run MPI benchmark natively over InfiniBand
  • Create a minimal startup script wrapping everything up; this startup script can be used by a batch scheduling system to restart a coprocessor on behalf of a user before running a job.
  • Where to find more resources or ask questions
