SC is the International Conference for
 High Performnance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 13-19, 2010

Parallel File System Benchmarking and Enhancements Update

SESSION: Parallel File System Benchmarking and Enhancements Update

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Tracey Wilson, Lee Ward


At SC08 in Austin, TX, Avetec’s DICE Program conducted a BOF to examine the interests of the HPC community for a comprehensive study of parallel file systems in an effort to develop a public domain test suite for performance measurement and validation, particularly between different architectures. This project also includes an effort to develop a normalization factor between those architectures. Results will be gathered utilizing the test suite on smaller systems first and then compared to systems of larger size with appropriately scaled file systems. The DICE Program, in conjunction with Sandia National Laboratories, is currently engaged in a project to develop this suite and a normalization factor for comparing file systems. This BOF will discuss the status of the project, its design and direction, and engage in dialogue with the HPC community to gather input on the final product and future additions or development phases for the test suite.
