NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Timeline and Updates

Edison memory upgraded during the maintenance in Jan 13-16, 2015

January 16, 2015 | 0 Comments

Edison compute node memory was upgraded to 1866 MHz from 1600 MHz during the maintenance on Jan 13-16, 2015. Edison now has a 14% improved memory bandwidth, and we have seen a 2-9% of performance increase with the standard NERSC 6 application benchmarks. We expect that the increased memory bandwidth will improve your application performance as well.

The Cray Developer Toolkit (CDT) 1.16 was set to default during the 6/25/14 maintenance. The following software versions are now default on Edison:

atp/1.7.3
cray-ga/5.1.0.5
cray-hdf5/1.8.13
cray-hdf5-parallel/1.8.13
cray-lgdb/2.3.1
cray-libsci/13.0.0
cray-mpich/7.0.0
cray-netcdf/4.3.2
cray-netcdf-hdf5parallel/4.3.2
cray-parallel-netcdf/1.4.1
craype/2.1.2
cray-petsc/3.4.4.0
cray-petsc-complex/3.4.4.0
cray-shmem/7.0.0
cray-tpsl/1.4.1
cray-trilinos/11.8.1.0
papi/5.3.1
perftools/6.2.0
perftools-lite/6.2.0
stat/2.1.0.1

cce/8.3.0
gcc/4.9.0

In addition, the following two modules were updated to be compatible with cray-mpich/7.0.0

fftw/3.3.4.0 (default)
fftw/2.1.5.7

Note, an ABI (see https://www.mpich.org/abi/ for more information) change in the Cray Message Passing Toolkit 7.0 release (cray-mpich/7.0.0) requires all MPI user code to be recompiled. Scientific libraries, Performance Tools, Cray Compiling Environment and third party libraries compatible with the new ABI are included in CDT 1.16 release.
