Decision Points in Implementing a Small HPC Cluster

SESSION: Decision Points in Implementing a Small HPC Cluster

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):David M. Stack, Beth Anderson, Roger A. Bielefeld


Many institutions are in the process of setting up and operating campus-scale clusters. Often staffing resources are limited and cluster system administrators are without a local peer group. This BoF is an opportunity for those affiliated with campus-scale, capacity clusters to share what has worked and not worked when configuring and managing these resources. The discussion will encompass storage environments, submit/compile environments, scheduler environments, software installation practices, monitoring tools, reporting tools, and historical trend analysis. Live polling via the attendees’ devices and laptops will be conducted during the session to generate a report on what choices the community has made. Meanwhile the discussion will capture what has worked well for people in building their clusters and what people wish they had done differently. This BoF continues the ongoing discussion that has taken place over the last two Supercomputing conferences and the Google Group for Small Centers for High Performance Computing.
