HPC Applications Best Practices

Wanted to let you know that we have extended the high-performance applications best practices to:


1. Extend the applications performance, optimization and profiling guidelines to cover nearly 30 different applications, both commercial and open source – http://www.hpcadvisorycouncil.com/best_practices.php


2. We have added the first case using RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) to the performance, optimization and profiling guidelines page. It is under the same link as in item 1


3. New – installations guides – for those who asked to get a detailed description on where to get the application from, what is needed to be installed, how to install on a cluster, and how to actually run the application – it is now posted under the HPC|Works subgroup – http://www.hpcadvisorycouncil.com/subgroups_hpc_works.php. We will be focusing on open source applications, which sometime it challenging to really find this info. At the moment we have installations guides for BQCD, Espresso and NAMD, and more will come in the near future.


If you would like to propose new applications to be covered under the performance, optimization and profiling guidelines, or to be added to the installations guides, please let us know via info@hpcadvisorycouncil.com.
