Task Mapping for Emerging Network Topologies

This project aims to improve the performance of large scientific simulations on next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) systems by developing new strategies for task mapping, the assignment of specific parts of an application to each of the many processing nodes in an HPC system. The specific network topology studied is Dragonfly, two variations of which are used in commercial systems. By improving application performance on next-generation HPC systems, the project will help realize the full potential of these powerful systems.

Publications and presentations

So far in this project, we have created the following major products:

All the students involved in the project have also presented their work at Knox and several of them has presented in other venues focused on undergrad research.
