Parallel science and engineering applications: the Charm++ by Laxmikant V. Kale, Abhinav Bhatele

By Laxmikant V. Kale, Abhinav Bhatele

Developed within the context of technology and engineering functions, with every one abstraction prompted by means of and additional honed by means of particular program wishes, Charm++ is a production-quality method that runs on just about all parallel desktops to be had. Parallel technology and Engineering purposes: The Charm++ Approach surveys a various and scalable selection of technological know-how and engineering functions, such a lot of that are used frequently on supercomputers by means of scientists to additional their research.

After a short creation to Charm++, the e-book provides numerous parallel CSE codes written within the Charm++ version, in addition to their underlying clinical and numerical formulations, explaining their parallelization innovations and parallel functionality. those chapters exhibit the flexibility of Charm++ and its software for a wide selection of purposes, together with molecular dynamics, cosmology, quantum chemistry, fracture simulations, agent-based simulations, and climate modeling.

The ebook is meant for a large viewers of individuals in academia and linked to the sector of excessive functionality computing. software builders and clients will locate this publication attention-grabbing as an advent to Charm++ and to constructing parallel purposes in an asynchronous message-driven version. it is going to even be an invaluable reference for undergraduate and graduate classes in desktop technology and different engineering disciplines. classes dedicated to parallel programming and writing of parallel CSE purposes will take advantage of this book.

It has been designed and refined in the context of collaborative development of multiple science and engineering applications, as the later chapters in this book illustrate. The signature strength of Charm++ is its adaptive runtime system, which allows programmers to deal with increasingly complex supercomputers and sophisticated algorithms with dynamic and evolving behavior.

To test this, suppose this program is running on a cluster of workstations. At any random point in time, try just killing the application process on one of the processors (in Linux, just kill -9 PID). The system will detect that one of the processes has died, retrieve the in-memory checkpoint, roll back to it and continue execution from it in less than a second! Of course, on proprietary machines such as Cray and IBM installations, or clusters running under a job scheduler, there is a problem: the job schedulers running on today’s supercomputers will simply kill a job if one node dies.
