Scaling HPC applications on your hardware is a vital task in supercomputing. If an application can’t use all of the hardware devoted to it, then you have expensive equipment sitting idle and not doing anyone any good. When looking at scalability, it is important to first ensure that the problem can scale. In other words, […]
Editor’s Note: RedLine Senior Program Analyst Kit Menlove contributed to this post. For industry and academia, managing workflows for large-scale data-intensive computational processes is a constant challenge. As every industry and scientific discipline becomes more reliant on ever increasingly complex and robust computational solutions, the ability to create repeatable and agile end-to-end processes becomes an […]
There are many build systems available for software development, and if your software is still using the venerable Make system, it can certainly pay to investigate an upgrade. Kitware’s cross-platform CMake system is one such framework, and it offers a considerable improvement. At its base level, CMake offers a single approach to building your software […]
For high-performance computing professionals, a deep understanding of how programs execute is vital. Often, that knowledge can spell the difference between making proper use of computing resources and meeting deadlines – or not. Keys to optimizing HPC resources include profiling program elements such as functions or subroutines and identifying and alleviating potential bottlenecks. Profiling refers […]
