Current software and hardware limitations prevent Many-Task Computing (MTC) workloads from leveraging hardware accelerators (NVIDIA GPUs, Intel Xeon Phi) boasting Many-Core Computing architectures. Some broad application classes that fit the MTC paradigm are workflows, MapReduce, high-throughput computing, and a subset of high-performance computing. MTC emphasizes using many computing resources over short periods of time to accomplish many computational tasks (i.e. including both dependent and independent tasks), where the primary metrics are measured in seconds. MTC has already proven successful in Grid Computing and Supercomputing on MIMD architectures, but the SIMD architectures of today’s accelerators pose many challenges in the efficient support of MTC workloads on accelerators. This work aims to address the programmability gap between MTC and accelerators, through an innovative middleware that enables MIMD programmability of SIMD architectures. This work will enable a broader class of applications to leverage the growing number of accelerated high-end computing systems.

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: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • 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: AMD APP SDK 2.9
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.0.1, AMD APP SDK 2.9

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
