HPC benchmarking: scaling right and looking beyond the average

The paper “HPC benchmarking: scaling right and looking beyond the average” by Milan Radulovic, Kazi Asifuzzaman, Paul Carpenter, Petar Radojković and Eduard Ayguadé from ExaNode Partner BSC will be presented at EuroPar 2018 in Turin, August 2018. Abstract: Designing a balanced HPC system requires an understanding of the dominant performance bottlenecks. There is as yet no well established methodology for a unified evaluation of HPC systems and workloads, and which quantifies the main performance bottlenecks. In this paper, we execute seven production HPC applications on a production HPC platform, and analyse key performance bottlenecks: FLOPS performance and memory bandwidth congestion, [...]

An EfficientWait-free Resizable Hash Table

The paper “An EfficientWait-free Resizable Hash Table” by Panagiota Fatourou and Nikolaos D. Kallimanis from ExaNoDe partner FORTH has been accepted by 30th ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA 2018) taking place from July 16-18 in Vienna. The paper builds on FORTH’s work in ExaNoDe on Lock Oscillation. Abstract: This paper presents an efficient wait-free resizable hash table. To achieve high throughput at large core counts, our algorithm is specifically designed to retain the natural parallelism of concurrent hashing, while providing wait-free resizing. An extensive evaluation of our hash table shows that it provides an unprecedented combination of [...]

The paper “Mismatch Compensation Technique for Inverter-Based CMOS Circuits” was accepted for the isQED 2018 conference

The paper "Mismatch Compensation Technique for Inverter-Based CMOS Circuits" by  Przemyslaw Mroszczyk and Vasilis F. Pavlidis from ExaNoDe partner University of Manchester was accepted for the isQED 2018 conference. Abstract: This paper presents the design of a low swing transceiver for chip-to-chip communication in 2.5-D integrated systems using a passive interposer. High speed and low power operation is achieved through a new dynamic low swing tunable transmitter (DLST-TX) and inverter-based tunable receiver (INVT-RX) circuits. The novelty of the proposed solution lies in the digital trimming for PVT corners and random parameter variability allowing significant reduction of the voltage swing down [...]
