PRACE PATC Course: Advanced Topics in High Performance Computing

provisional Date: Monday, March 31 - Thursday, April 3, 2014, 9:00-18:00
Location: LRZ Building, University campus Garching, near Munich
Contents: In this add-on course to the parallel programming course special topics are treated in more depth, in particular performance analysis, I/O and PGAS concepts. It is provided in collaboration of Erlangen Regional Computing Centre (RRZE) and LRZ within KONWIHR.

Each day is comprised of approximately 5 hours of lectures and 2 hours of hands-on sessions.

Day 1

  • OpenMP 4.0 (M. Klemm, Intel)
  • Introduction to Intel Xeon Phi
  • Intel tools: MPI tracing and Checking
  • Intel tools: OpenMP performance and correctness

Day 2

  • Parallel I/O with MPI IO (Wittmann)
  • Performance analysis with Scalasca (Navarrete)

Day 3

  • Tuning I/O on LRZ's HPC systems
  • Portability of I/O: Binary files NetCDF HDF5

Day 4

  • PGAS programming with coarray Fortran and Unified Parallel C (Bader)
  • PGAS hands on session
Prerequisites Good MPI and OpenMP knowledge as presented in the course "Parallel programming of High Performance Systems" (see above).
