Improving HPC IO with IME

February 10, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Your Desktop


Supercomputers allow researchers to bring much more computational performance to their projects. One challenge of this additional performance is the increased rate that data may need to be accessed or written while the workloads are running.
This session will train users how to use the IME burst buffer on Great Lakes to reach IO performance potentially 10x greater than scratch or Turbo with their existing applications reaching over 80GBytes/s.
Requirements are basic command line and a Great Lakes user account.
