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.

Challenges of HPC Monitoring

SESSION: State of the Practice - HPC Monitoring/Syslog

EVENT TYPE: State of the Practice

TIME: 1:30PM - 2:30PM


AUTHOR(S):William (Bill) E. Allcock, Randal Rheinheimer, Mike Lowe, Joshi Fullop, Evan Felix


HPC monitoring has no dominant solution, such as MPI for parallel programming. Any HPC administrator would likely agree that this is an area with plenty of room for improvement and this problem is only going to get worse as we grow to exascale. The panel members will discuss the biggest problems they face in HPC monitoring today, the good, the bad, and the ugly of what they have tried, and how this will change as we grow to larger and larger systems. The panel members represent 5 different institutions (ANL, IU, LANL, NCSA and PNNL), and over 25 years of combined experience on dozens of HPC clusters.
