Develop, Deploy, and Innovate with Intel® Cluster Ready

  1. 1. 1Develop, Deploy and Innovatewith Intel® Cluster Readycluster architecture for distributed performanceJune, 19 2013Werner Krotz-Vogel
  2. 2. 2Intel® Cluster Ready• Intel® Cluster Ready - an “industry standard architecture forIntel-based Linux clusters”Intel Cluster Ready implements an industry-standard cluster architecture that letsyou select, deploy and manage a high-performance cluster almost as easily as adesktop PC. This architecture helps to ensure interoperability across the completeHPC solution stack.• Intel® Cluster Checker tool included with Intel Cluster ReadysystemsAfter installation, users can easily check system health with Intel Cluster Checker,System Administrators can easily perform preventative maintenance, and clusterdiagnostics2
  3. 3. 3Intel® Cluster Ready – New Specification 1.3Evolution of the Intel® Cluster Ready architectureMain new features• Adds Intel Xeon® PhiTM (and co-processors / accelerators in general)• Updates the versions of the set of components• New reference design incorporating Intel Xeon® PhiTMAvailable July 12, 20133
  4. 4. 4Intel® Cluster Checker – New Version 2.1Update to the second generation Intel® Cluster CheckerImportant new features• Verifies Intel® Cluster Ready 1.3 compliance (and maintains support for1.2)• Fully supports Intel Xeon® PhiTM based clusters• Easily extensible (no coding necessary!)Available July 12, 20134
  5. 5. 5Intel® Cluster Checker 2.1 withIntel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor support•The micinfo test module checks that coprocessor information is correctand uniform across nodes. Any error, undefined value or abnormaldifference among coprocessors is reported when it may impact clusterproductivity.•The miccheck test module checks the sanity of the coprocessor cards byrunning miccheck diagnostic tools in every node in parallel.•To run a benchmark which offloads work to a coprocessor:$ OFFLOAD_REPORT=2 MKL_MIC_ENABLE=1 clck -I micinfo -I miccheck -I dgemm
