    Title: Enabling Efficient Execution of In Situ Workflows

    Abstract:

    Advances in high-performance computing (HPC) allow scientific simulations to run at an ever-increasing scale, generating a large amount of data that needs to be analyzed over time. Conventionally, the simulation outputs the entire simulated data set to the file system for later post-processing.
    Unfortunately, the slow growth of I/O technologies compared to the computing capability of present-day processors causes an I/O bottleneck of post-processing as saving data to storage is not as fast as data is generated. According to data-centric models, a new processing paradigm has recently emerged, called in situ, where simulation data is analyzed on-the-fly to reduce the expensive I/O cost of saving massive data for post-processing. Since an in situ workflow usually consists of
    co-located tasks running concurrently on the same resources in an iterative manner, the execution yields complicated behaviors that create challenges in evaluating the efficiency of an in situ run. To enable efficient execution of in situ workflows, this proposal proposes a theoretical framework that models the efficiency of in situ execution for evaluating the performance of in situ workflows. By extending the proposed performance model to resource-aware performance indicators, we introduce a method to assess resource usage, resource allocation, and resource provisioning for in situ workflow ensembles. In support of the thesis, this work serves as a prerequisite of evaluating in situ scheduling decisions.

  • Repeating EventKCLC Welcome Week Workshops

    Thu, Sep 02, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Hello Trojans!
    Are you looking for assistance on how to best adjust to the return to campus, improve your social skills, cultivate time management skills, and alleviate stress? Come to our workshops and Drop-in hours hosted by the USC Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity. No reservation or appointment is required for our general workshops and drop-ins.

    KCLC will be hosting Welcome Week workshops on Returning to Campus and Time Management. Starting in September, the workshops will have a weekly theme of time management, reading strategies, stress management or test-taking. The workshops will be interactive with great tips and resources.

    The Drop-in hours, where you can meet with an academic coach to discuss learning strategies will start the second full week of the semester Monday-Friday. Please note: these may be held in a group format depending on staff availability and demand.

    For more information, see the attached flyers with dates and times. We have also attached a semester calendar and created a Student Success zip file as you prepare to start the semester.

    If you are interested in learning more about weekly academic coaching, email us at kortschakcenter@usc.edu for additional information.

    KCLC will have more events throughout the semester and you can check out the most up to date workshop and drop-in schedule on their website
