The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), in coordination with HPE, AMD, and the Exascale Computing Project (ECP), have been delivering Crusher Hackathons for the users of the OLCF’s Crusher test-and-development system (a 192-node stand-alone system with the same node architecture as Frontier).

During this talk, the OLCF will share some of the lessons learned from these hackathons, including topics such as GPU hardware atomics, managed/unified memory, GPU register pressure, and a handful of potentially helpful tips.

Speaker Tom Papatheodore, HPC Engineer, System Acceptance & User Environment Group, Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Tom Papatheodore Image Tom Papatheodore is an HPC Engineer in the System Acceptance & User Environment group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
In this role, he develops and runs benchmark applications to verify functionality and performance of OLCF’s pre-production HPC systems, works with OLCF staff and vendor partners to support early-access users of these systems, and manages the pre-production training program for these users. Tom also runs regression tests on user-facing software for the facility’s production supercomputers, helps organize training events related to these systems, and manages the OLCF’s involvement in an annual GPU hackathon series alongside NVIDIA and other partner organizations.
