MPI Sessions: paper at EuroMPI 2016
The INTERTWinE team is pleased to announce that some of the work carried out within the context of the project will be referenced in a full paper to be presented by Dr Daniel Holmes of EPCC at EuroMPI 2016 (Edinburgh, 25-28 September).
The paper, entitled MPI Sessions: Leveraging Runtime Infrastructure to Increase Scalability of Applications at Exascale, will be given in session 6 (Track A) on Tuesday 27th September. The abstract follows:
MPI includes all processes in MPI_COMM_WORLD; this is untenable for reasons of scale, resiliency, and overhead. This paper offers a new approach, extending MPI with Sessions, which makes two key contributions: a tighter integration with the underlying runtime system; and a scalable route to communication groups. This is a fundamental change in how we organise and address MPI processes that removes well-known scalability barriers by no longer requiring the global communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD.
