Room: Booth N-230
Type: Project Poster
Description: The process of establishing systematic Performance Engineering for Scientific Computing on HPC systems is still ongoing. In this poster we present the "ProPE" project, which is being funded as part of the DFG call "Performance Engineering für wissenschaftliche Software." The ProPE project aims at laying the foundation for a blueprint of processes and infrastructures creating an integrated Performance Engineering strategy for academic HPC centers in Germany. With the Gauss-Allianz there is already an initiative to integrate and organize the Tier-2/3 HPC landscape in Germany. Furthermore there are multiple local efforts such as, e.g., bwHPC, KONWIHR, HKHLR and HLRN. Our contribution is to integrate with and build on existing efforts and further drive the final goal of an hierarchical and yet integrated German HPC infrastructure with an emphasis on Performance Engineering. This comprises a structured Performance Engineering process focusing on performance-limiting motifs (called patterns), a web-based information hub created under the Gauss-Allianz umbrella, an aligned nationwide teaching curriculum, a distributed PE support infrastructure leveraging the unified HPC competence in Germany and automatic application performance monitoring on HPC Cluster systems. We updated the content from last years project poster to reflect the contributions of the past year.
