DEISA: Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications

DEISA logo

DEISA Training Courses: 3 - 4 November 2009, SARA, Amsterdam

Introduction to the DEISA Infrastructure.
The Scalasca Performance Analysis Toolset.

Registration for these courses is now closed

DEISA is running two training courses at the SARA Computing and Network Centre, Amsterdam, in November 2009. Both courses will be based around a number of practical programming exercises. To register for either of these courses please complete the course registration form.

The first course on Tuesday 3rd November is an Introduction to the DEISA Infrastructure. This will cover the basic aspects of the DEISA distributed supercomputer environment and the software tools that are used to access it.

The timetable is:

09:00 Overview of DEISA project and HPC systems
09:30 Basic DEISA software stack
10:00 Introduction to UNICORE
10:30 Coffee break
11:00 UNICORE practical session
12:30 Lunch break
13:30 Introduction to DESHL
14:00 DESHL practical session
15:00 Coffee break
15:30 Overview of Globus services
16:15 Globus practical
17:30 Close

No prior knowledge is assumed for this course.

The second course on Wednesday 4th November will cover The Scalasca Performance Analysis Toolset.

Scalasca is an open-source, portable toolset that can be used to analyse the behaviour of parallel applications and to identify opportunities for performance optimisation. It has been specifically designed for use on large-scale HPC systems such as those in DEISA, but is also well-suited for small and medium-scale HPC platforms. Scalasca supports an incremental performance-analysis procedure that integrates runtime summaries with in-depth profiles of parallel execution. DEISA staff will be on hand to help users with the Scalasca practical exercises and to help analyse the execution of their own programs on the DEISA platforms.

The timetable is:

09:00 Introduction to parallel performance analysis
10:00 Introduction to the Scalasca toolset
10:30 Coffee break
11:00 Hands-on practical: using Scalasca with provided example application
12:00 Scalasca usage case studies
12:30 Lunch break
13:30 Hands-on practical: analysing user applications
15:00 Coffee break
15:30 Hands-on practical: analysing user applications (continued)
17:30 Close

We assume that those attending this course will already have their own parallel application that currently runs on some other HPC system.

To register for either of these courses please complete the course registration form.
