LLNL’s Stack Trace Analysis Tool helps users quickly identify errors in code running on today’s largest machines.

Project

ROSE, an open-source project maintained by Livermore researchers, provides easy access to complex, automated compiler technology and assistance.

Project

New platforms are improving big data computing on Livermore’s high performance computers.

Project

LLNL researchers are finding some factors are more important in determining HPC application performance than traditionally thought.

Project

Livermore computer scientists have helped create a flexible framework that aids programmers in creating source code that can be used effectively on multiple hardware architectures.

Project

LLNL computer scientists use machine learning to model and characterize the performance and ultimately accelerate the development of adaptive applications.

Project

Livermore Computing staff is enhancing the high-speed InfiniBand data network used in many of its high performance computing and file systems.

Project

Performance analysis of parallel scientific codes is difficult. The HAC model allows direct comparison of data across domains with data viz and analysis tools available in other domains.

Project

Fast Global File Status (FGFS) is an open-source package that provides scalable mechanisms and programming interfaces to retrieve global information of a file.

Project

MPI_T is an interface for tools introduced in the 3.0 version of MPI. The interface provides mechanisms for tools to access and set performance and control variables that are exposed by an MPI implementation.

Project

Cram lets you easily run many small MPI jobs within a single, large MPI job by splitting MPI_COMM_WORLD up into many small communicators to run each job in the cram file independently.

Project

libMSR provides a convenient interface to access Model Specific Registers and to allow tools to utilize their full functionality.

Project

Caliper enables users to build customized performance measurement and analysis solutions by connecting independent context annotations, measurement services, and data processing services.

Project

Spindle improves the library-loading performance of dynamically linked HPC applications by plugging into the system’s dynamic linker and intercepting its file operations.

Project

PnMPI is a thin, low-overhead wrapper library that is automatically generated from mpi.h file and that can be linked by default.

Project

Veritas provides a method for validating proxy applications to ensure that they capture the intended characteristics of their parents.

Project

This tool that automatically diagnoses performance and correctness faults in MPI applications. It identifies abnormal MPI tasks and code regions and finds the least-progressed task.

Project

Application-level resilience is emerging as an alternative to traditional fault tolerance approaches because it provides fault tolerance at a lower cost than traditional approaches.

Project

Working on world-class supercomputers at a U.S. national laboratory was not what Edgar Leon, a native of Mexico, envisioned when he began preparing for university.

These techniques emulate the behavior of anticipated future architectures on current machines to improve performance modeling and evaluation.

Project

With SCR, jobs run more efficiently, recover more work upon failure, and reduce load on critical shared resources.

Project

Greg Lee helps develop tools designed to boost performance and productivity of Livermore scientists.
