Performance Conscious HPC (PeCoH)
In PeCoH, we establish the Hamburg HPC Competence Center (HHCC) as a virtual institution, which coordinates and fosters joint performance engineering activities between the local compute centers DKRZ, RRZ and TUHH RZ. Together, we will implement user services to support performance engineering on a basic level, provide a basis for co-development, user education and dissemination of performance engineering concepts. We will evaluate methods to raise user awareness for performance engineering and bring them into production environments in order to tune standard software as well as individual software. Specifically, we address cost-awareness, provide representative success stories, provide basic and advanced HPC knowledge as online content resulting in a certification system, and evaluate the benefit of alternative workflows for scientific productivity.
The PeCoH project ended in 2019. Results from the project can also be found at https://wr.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/research/projects/pecoh/start.
PeCoH was supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) under grants LU 1353/12-1, OL 241/2-1, and RI 1068/7-1.
