A system level view of Petascale I/O on IBM Blue Gene/P

Abstract

Petascale supercomputers rely on highly efficient Petascale I/O subsystems. This work describes the tuning and scaling behavior of the GPFS parallel file system on JUGENE, the largest IBM Blue Gene/P installation worldwide and the first PetaFlop/s HPC resource within the European PRACE Research Infrastructure.

This work was supported by the FZJ/IBM Exascale Innovation Center, EIC cooperation agreement T/Z1213.02.09.
