SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

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.

Log Analysis for Fault Management in Large-scale Systems

SESSION: Doctoral Research Showcase (2 of 2)

EVENT TYPE: Doctoral Research Showcase

TIME: 4:15PM - 4:30PM

SESSION CHAIR: Volodymyr Kindratenko

Presenter(s):Ziming Zheng


With the increasing scale and complexity of high performance computing (HPC) systems, reliability is becoming critical for these systems. System logs are the primary source of information to understand and analyze system problems. Nevertheless, manual log processing is time-consuming, errorprone, and not scalable. Currently little study has been done on automated log analysis for practical use in HPC systems. In this study, we present a log analysis infrastructure by exploiting data mining and statistical learning technologies. Our work can be broadly divided into four parts: log pre-processing, online failure prediction, automatic root cause diagnosis, and reliability modeling. We evaluate our preliminary results by means of system logs collected from production HPC systems. The work can greatly improve our understanding of faults and failures arising from hardware/software components and their interactions in HPC systems. It can further facilitate the resilience research for HPC systems.
