When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Scalable Message Logging for HPC Applications

SESSION: Doctoral Research Showcase (2 of 2)

EVENT TYPE: Doctoral Research Showcase

TIME: 3:45PM - 4:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Volodymyr Kindratenko

Presenter(s):Esteban Meneses


In the Exascale era, the evolution of supercomputing will bring massive machines comprising millions of cores and a similar number of components. In those complex machines adaptivity will be fundamental. One dimension of adaptivity, fault tolerance, is considered one of the main challenges for systems of that size. Some estimates project an Exascale machine will fail several times per hour. To deal with a high frequency of failures, it is necessary to go beyond traditional checkpoint/restart approaches, where all processing elements are rolled back to their latest checkpoint even after the crash of only one of them. Message logging is a promising alternative which, nevertheless, faces various challenges. This work addresses the major drawbacks of message logging and provides a set of techniques that will make it an effective solution to provide resilience for Exascale machines.
