Cool Supercomputing: Achieving Energy Efficiency at the Extreme Scales
SESSION: Cool Supercomputing: Achieving Energy Efficiency at the Extreme Scales
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Darren J. Kerbyson, Abhinav Vishnu, Kevin J. Barker
Power consumption is a major concern for future generation supercomputers. Current systems consume around a Megawatt per Petaflop. Exascale levels of computation will be significantly constrained if power requirements scale linearly with performance. The optimization of power and energy at all levels, from application to system software and to hardware, is required. This BOF will discuss state-of-the-art tools and techniques for observing and optimizing energy consumption. The challenges ahead are many-fold. Increasing parallelism, memory systems, interconnection networks, storage and uncertainties in programming models all add to the complexities. The interplay between performance, power, and reliability also leads to complex trade-offs.
