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.

The course is a PRACE training event.

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

Day 1

  • Processor-Specific Optimization (Eitzinger)

Day 2

  • Parallel I/O with MPI IO (Wittmann)
  • SuperMUC Tour (Weinberg)
  • Tuning I/O on LRZ's HPC systems / I/O Profiling: Darshan tool (Mendez)

Day 3

  • Scientific Data Libraries: HDF5 / Scalable I/O library: SIONlib (Mendez)
  • Introduction into Intel Xeon Phi (KNL) Programming (Weinberg)

Day 4

  • PGAS programming with coarray Fortran and Unified Parallel C (Bader)

Prerequisites: Good MPI and OpenMP knowledge as presented in the course "Parallel programming of High Performance Systems".
