Benchmarks & Workflows

For the Crossroads/NERSC-9 procurement:

  • NERSC conducted a workload analysis on the Hopper and Edison systems analyzing algorithmic diversity, MPI and OpenMP concurrency,  memory utilization, and I/O and storage needs.
  • Benchmarks will be used to measure the sustained performance of proposed systems.
  • Example workflows are being provided to give prospective offerors a better understanding of the current I/O usage patterns of the current platforms. The workflows whitepaper, jointly written by LANL, SNL and NERSC,  describes how we use supercomputers today.
