GeMTC allows for Many Task Computing (MTC) workloads to run on hardware accelerators allowing for advantages that come from the many-core architecture. However, presently GeMTC is only written to take advantage of NVIDIA GPUs. Another such hardware accelerator, the Intel Xeon Phi, is also an excellent candidate for MTC workloads. Therefore, the first goal of this project will be to add support to GeMTC to allow it to run on Xeon Phi. While there has been plenty of research on power consumption of hardware accelerators, MTC workloads are a significantly understudied research area. MonEQ, a power profiling library, was primarily developed to measure power consumption of the IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer, but has lately evolved to also include profiling of both NVIDIA GPUs as well as the Intel Xeon Phi. As a second goal, this project seeks to profile real MTC workloads running on both NVIDIA GPUs as well as on the Xeon Phi.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
