Webinar on “Piz Daint Upgrade: What Is New?”

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

CSCS is happy to announce a webinar on “Piz Daint Upgrade” to be held on Monday December 5, 2016 at 14:00.

As announced in several occasions, Piz Daint has been upgraded from SandyBridge/K20x to Haswell/Pascal, our teams are working to bring the system back in production on schedule (i.e. by the middle of December). It is therefore time to start getting familiar with the upgraded system.

The seminar will focus on describing the new configuration, and providing useful information on job  submission, queue organization etc.

A Q&A session will close the discussion.

Workshops on “Advanced C++ for HPC” and “Task based Programming with HPX” on September 26-30, 2016

Monday, August 29th, 2016

CSCS is pleased to announce a 3-day workshop on “Advanced C++ for HPC” to be held at  CSCS in Lugano on September  26-28 followed by a 2-day workshop on “Task based Programming with HPX” on September 29-30, 2016.

The two workshops are independent however, the “Task based Programming with HPX” requires a good
understanding of C++ and therefore may be considered as an extension of the “Advanced C++ for HPC”

Registrations are now opened! The deadline for registration is September 16th, 2016.

Webinar Deep-Dive GPU Debugging with Allinea DDT

Friday, February 19th, 2016

The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre is delighted to invite you to attend its new live webinar “Deep-Dive GPU Debugging with Allinea DDT” on Monday 22 February at 13:30.

Following the previous Allinea DDT webinar introducing the development toolkit available at CSCS and the keys to get started with debugging on Piz Daint, Allinea will now focus on challenges coming from accelerators. Whether you are using CUDA or OpenACC codes, this webinar will help you speed up problem resolution on GPU.

During this session, Allinea will show how to debug a job using Nvidia GPUs and will deep-dive into GPU debugging subtleties, such as:

  • controlling GPU kernels execution
  • visualizing data on the host memory or on the GPU memory
  • resolving a typical GPU related-problem.

The webinar will conclude with an open discussion. It will provide an opportunity to talk with CSCS and Allinea staff about debugging at CSCS, to acquire the latest updates and ask any question that you may have.

We invite new or advanced users with general interest in debugging tools to join this event remotely. No registration is required to participate.
