[ CENTER FOR ADVANCED SUPERCOMPUTING SOFTWARE FOR MULTITHREADED ARCHITECTURES (CASS-MT) ] [ OBJECTIVE ] To design software for the analysis of massive-scale spatio-temporal interaction networks using multithreaded architectures such as the Cray XMT. The Center launched in July 2008 and is led by Pacific-Northwest National Laboratory. [ DESCRIPTION ] We are designing and implementing advanced, scalable algorithms for static and dynamic graph analysis, including generalized k-betweenness centrality and dynamic clustering coefficients. [ HIGHLIGHTS ] On a 64-processor Cray XMT, k-betweenness centrality scales nearly linearly (58.4x) on a graph with 16M vertices and 134M edges. Initial streaming clustering coefficients handle around 200k updates/sec on a similarly sized graph. [ FUNDING ] Pacific Northwest National Laboratory David A.

[ DESCRIPTION ] Current high-performance architectures are built to run linear algebra operations effectively. These architectures seem a poor fit for the massive growth of irregular data coming from biological, social, regulatory, and other sources. There are no widely supported benchmarks to guide architectural decisions for these applications. Georgia Tech worked within Graph500 steering committee to draft a new breadth-first search benchmark acceptable for wide participation. Georgia Tech also provided and supports the OpenMP and Cray XMT shared-memory reference codes. For more: Visit the Graph500 BoF! [ FUNDING ] Sandia National Labs David A. Bader (PI), Jason Riedy
