In a talk recorded for the 2020 LLNL Computing Virtual Expo, Computing principal deputy associate director and ECP deputy director Lori Diachin describes the ECP’s goals and the Laboratory's role.
The latest issue of LLNL's Science & Technology Review magazine showcases Computing in the cover story alongside a commentary by Bruce Hendrickson.
Proxy apps serve as specific targets for testing and simulation without the time, effort, and expertise that porting or changing most production codes would require.
With its advanced CPUs/GPUs developed by AMD, El Capitan’s peak performance is expected to exceed 2 exaFLOPS, which would make it the fastest supercomputer in the world when it is deployed in 2023.
The NNSA’s first exascale supercomputer, El Capitan, will have a peak performance of more than 1.5 exaflops (1.5 quintillion calculations per second) and an anticipated delivery in late 2022.
The Center for Efficient Exascale Discretizations (CEED) within the ECP involves more than 30 computational scientists from 2 DOE labs (Livermore and Argonne) and 5 universities.
Highlights include recent LDRD projects, Livermore Tomography Tools, our work with the open-source software community, fault recovery, and CEED.
Veritas provides a method for validating proxy applications to ensure that they capture the intended characteristics of their parents.
