DescriptionSupercomputers are becoming larger and more complex
tightly integrated systems consisting of many different
hardware components, tens of thousands of processors and
memory chips, kilometers of networking cables, large
numbers of disks, and hundreds of applications and
libraries. To increase scientific productivity and
ensure that applications efficiently and effectively
exploit a system’s full potential, all the components
must deliver reliable, stable, and performant service.
This BoF discusses the best practice from supercomputing
centers using different strategies on system performance
assessments and seeks those interested in sharing
experiences to detect issues related to the performance
and functionality of HPC systems.
