Dr Scott Klasky, from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is visiting Perth.
Time and Date: Monday 10 July from 10.00am to 3.00pm.
Location: Pawsey Supercomputing Centre exhibition area
During this session, you will be taken from a general introduction to a parallel I/O all the way to more advanced topics from one of the original ADIOS developers, Scott Klasky.
The Tutorial is free but you will need to register here for catering purposes.
About the workshop:
As concurrency and complexity continue to increase on high-end machines, I/O performance is rapidly becoming a fundamental challenge to achieving exascale computing. To address this challenge, wider adoption of higher-level I/O abstractions will be critically important. Modern I/O libraries provide data models, portable APIs, storage abstractions, and self-describing data containers. These capabilities enable reproducible science, allow data to be managed more effectively throughout the data life cycle, and facilitate parallel I/O with high performance and scalability.
Part I of this tutorial will introduce parallel I/O in general, including file systems, I/O, and middleware libraries. We will summarise the lessons and the key techniques that the team has gained through their many years of collaborations at large computing facilities. The ADIOS framework was created and refined through these collaborations, provide the abstractions needed to address many exascale I/O challenges. Parts II and III will introduce the ADIOS abstraction, library and usage model, and specifically how to use them to achieve high performance. This will include hands-on sessions where ADIOS will be applied to specific computational examples. Part IV will cover advanced topics.
