Lmod: What's New with TACC's Environment Module System
Presenters
  • Robert McLay
Length
Time

This presentation will give a quick overview on the Environment Module system called Lmod. It will discuss the features of Lmod over other module system. Finally, it will cover the new features of Lmod 8.0+ like the new embedded TCL interpreter and the new module extensions feature and questions from the audience.

XALT: How to Track and Understand What Your Users are Running on Your System
Presenters
  • Robert McLay
Length
Time

XALT is an extremely lightweight solution to track what your users do. XALT tracks both MPI and non-MPI programs. Come see how easy it is to better understand what your users are doing. Let's learn how to drink from the firehose of job data that your site is generating without drowning in data.

A High-Productivity Tool for Interactive Parallelization
Presenters
  • Ritu Arora
Length
Time

IPT is a high-productivity tool that can semi-automatically parallelize certain types of serial C/C++ programs and is currently being used for teaching parallel programming to students and domain-experts. It solicits the specifications for parallelization from the users, such as, what to parallelize and where. On the basis of these specifications, IPT translates the serial programs into working parallel versions using one of the three popular parallel programming paradigms, which are: MPI, OpenMP, and CUDA. Hence, IPT can free the users from the burden of learning the syntax of the different parallel programming paradigms, and any manual reengineering required for parallelizing the existing serial programs. The performance of the parallel versions generated using IPT is within 10% of the performance of the best hand-written parallel versions available to us.

Visual Analysis on Frontera
Presenters
  • Paul Navrátil
Length
Time

Frontera, the new NSF leadership-class resource at TACC, provides unprecedented investigative power to open-science researchers. Much of the data generated on Frontera will be too large to analyze using conventional post-hoc methods. In this talk, Paul Navrátil will discuss the capabilities and tools that TACC is developing and deploying on Frontera to enable remote and in situ analysis, including the Galaxy distributed ray tracing framework.


Tapis – Transforming HPC through APIs
Presenters
  • Joe Stubbs
Length
Time

Tapis is an NSF-funded, web-based API framework for securely managing computational workloads across institutions, so that experts can focus on their research instead of the technology needed to accomplish it. More than 15 active projects across a wide range of domains of science and engineering rely on Tapis to accomplish their research objectives. In this talk, we will introduce Tapis, cover its primary capabilities, and highlight some of the interesting ways projects are using it today.

Improving a Science Gateways' Efficiency and Effectiveness by Implementing User-Centered Design
Presenters
  • Paul Parsons
  • Claire Stirm
  • Maytal Dahan
Length
Time

The Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI), which TACC is a core member, provides science gateways and HPC portals with services to coach gateway teams on sustainability best practices and offer a variety of consulting engagements. One of our most heavily used consulting engagements is usability. Lead by Dr. Paul Parsons at Purdue University, Parsons and his team of usability consultants apply user-centered methods to help improve the usability of gateways. Through this presentation, we hope to increase the appreciation of the multiple dimensions of usability, identify violations of design principles, and build strategies for identifying and fixing usability problems. We also would like to share use-cases of gateways we have worked with and run through a live user testing scenario with the crowd to demonstrate how a user study could be conducted by anyone.
