As the computing, networking, heterogeneous hardware, and storage technologies continue to evolve in HEC platforms, Understanding the full-stack performance tradeoffs and interplay between HPC applications, MPI libraries, the communication fabric, the file system, and the job scheduler becomes more challenging endeavor. Such understanding will enable all involved parties to understand the bottlenecks to maximize the efficiency and performance of the individual components that comprise a modern HPC system and solve different grand challenge problems. Through this tutorial, the participants will learn how to use the OSU InfiniBand Network Analysis and Monitoring (INAM) tool in conjunction with live jobs running on various remote clusters at OSC and OSU to visualize, analyze, and correlate how the MPI runtime, high-performance network, I/O filesystem, and job scheduler interact and identify potential bottlenecks online. Emphasis is placed on how tools are used in combination for identifying performance problems and investigating optimization alternatives. We will request remote access to the Pitzer system at OSC and the RI/RI2 clusters at OSU for hands-on exercises. This will help to prepare participants to locate and diagnose performance bottlenecks in their own clusters and parallel programs.
