Conference Papers

James M. Craw, Nicholas P. Cardo, Yun (Helen) He, and Janet M. Lebens, "Post-Mortem of the NERSC Franklin XT Upgrade to CLE 2.1", Cray User Group Meeting 2009, Atlanta, GA, May 2009,

This paper will discuss the lessons learned of the events leading up to the production deployment of CLE 2.1 and the post install issues experienced in upgrading NERSC's XT4 system called Franklin.

 

Yun (Helen) He, William T.C. Kramer, Jonathan Carter, and Nicholas Cardo, "Franklin: User Experiences", Cray User Group Meetin 2008, May 4, 2008, LBNL 2014E,

The newest workhorse of the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center is a Cray XT4 with 9,736 dual core nodes. This paper summarizes Franklin user experiences from friendly early user period to production period. Selected successful user stories along with top issues affecting user experiences are presented.
