MSC Nastran Performance: Balancing Compute, Memory and I/O for Maximum Throughput

MSC Nastran is widely used across the HPC CAE community. But it’s also well known for stressing all aspects of an HPC system. To be most effective, MSC Nastran needs powerful compute capability combined with a balanced memory and I/O configuration. In this webinar, you’ll see MSC Nastran performance results with particular attention paid to recent I/O technology. In particular, we’ll look at Cray® DataWarp™ technology, which can leverage SSDs across a high-performance interconnect.

Making Sense of 50 Billion Triples: No Free Lunch

A lot of grandiose claims have been made promising that graph databases would allow easy ingest of all manner of disparate data and make sense of it — and uncover hidden relationships and meaning. This is, in fact, possible — but there are a few things you need to consider to make your database useful to an analyst charged with making sense of the information. There simply is no free lunch; where time and effort are saved in one place, they must be expended (at least partially) elsewhere. Check out the blog post to learn more.

Optimizing HPC Program Performance with OpenMP and Reveal

What do you do when the performance of the MPI program that distributes your work across many cores and nodes starts to level off? Like any good programmer, you enlist the help of your favorite performance profiler to understand what’s going on. You find that you are now network bound, or that the MPI memory footprint has grown so large that there is little room left for your program. Check out this blog post to learn how the Cray® Reveal™ porting tool shows you a ranked list of important loops and relevant optimization inhibitors to add parallelism to your program faster using OpenMP directives.
