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.

An Early Performance Analysis of POWER7-IH HPC Systems

SESSION: Performance Evaluation and Analysis


TIME: 2:00PM - 2:30PM

AUTHOR(S):Kevin Barker, Adolfy Hoisie, Darren Kerbyson


In this work we present a performance evaluation of the POWER7-IH processor and of integrated systems built from it. We describe the architecture of P7-IH with an emphasis on those characteristics that have a direct impact on the performance for large-scale HPC systems and applications. An important area of emphasis is the memory and communication subsystems and their impact on achievable application performance. The results from a set of micro-benchmarks are presented that include memory, communication and OS-noise characteristics. In addition the results from several production level applications are analyzed and their performance linked to the results of the micro-benchmarks through the use of accurate performance models. The models will also be employed in exploring the achievable performance of these applications on much larger systems.
