SuperMUC Training: Using the GPFS parallel file system
publish at lrz.de

Dear users of the supzero migration system,
When user operation of the Petaflop system "SuperMUC" starts in summer
2012, a new and very powerful I/O subsystem will also become available.
This will allow large-scale parallel I/O with an aggregate bandwidth of
200 GB/s and be based on IBM's General Parallel File system (GPFS).
Handling large-scale I/O is not a trivial task and requires some
knowledge of the properties of GPFS and its tools and facilities for I/
O tuning. In order to provide this knowledge, a one-day workshop will
take place on January 30, 2012; participation in this event is highly
recommended for all SuperMUC users who do large-scale I/O (either many
small files, or any number of large files) with their simulation
Further details are available at http://www.lrz.de/services/compute/
Registration for the event is required since only a limited number of
seats is available.
