An Exascale Workload Study

SESSION: Research Poster Reception

EVENT TYPE: Posters and Electronic Posters

TIME: 5:15PM - 7:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Torsten Hoefler

AUTHOR(S):Rinku Gupta, Prasanna Balaprakash, Darius Buntinas, Anthony Chan, Apala Guha, Sri Hari Krishna Narayanan, Andrew Chien, Paul Hovland, Boyana Norris

ROOM:East Entrance

ABSTRACT:
While Amdahl's 90-10 approach has been used in the past to drive supercomputing speedup in the last few decades, increasing heterogeneous architectures combined with power and energy limitations dictates a need for a new paradigm. In this poster, we describe our 10x10 paradigm, which identifies top ten distinct dominant characteristics in a set of applications. One could then exploit customized architectures (accelerators), best suited to optimize each dominant characteristic. Every application will typically have multiple characteristics and thus will use several customized accelerators/tools during its various execution phases. The goal is to ensure that the application runs efficiently and that the architecture is used in an energy-efficient manner. In this poster, we describe our efforts in three directions (1) understanding applications characterization, (2) developing extrapolation statistical models to understand application characteristics at exascale level, (3) evaluating extrapolated applications with technologies that might potentially be available during the exascale era.
