We have been developing a large scale PC cluster named PACS-CS (Parallel Array Computer System for Computational Sciences) at Center for Computational Sciences, University of Tsukuba, for wide variety of computational science applications such as computational physics, computational material science, computational biology, etc. We consider the most(More)
This paper proposes a scalable communication layer for a multi-dimensional hyper crossbar network using multiple Gigabit Ethernet for the PACS-CS system which consists of 2560 single-processor nodes and a 16 x 16 x 10 three dimensional hyper-crossbar network (3D-HXB). To realize a high performance communication layer using multiple existing Ethernet(More)
In this paper, we propose and evaluate the experimental implementation of cache coloring for task structures on the Linux kernel 2.4.x. We analyzed the behavior of the scheduler from the viewpoint of memory architecture and found that severe cache conflicts occur in a specific cache line. To solve this issue, we applied cache coloring scheme to task(More)
This work describes a design of high performance communication facility called the PM/InfiniBand-FJ using InfiniBand interconnect for large scale PC clusters. The PM/InfiniBand-FJ has developed to realize higher application performance than commercial supercomputers and comparable availability to them. Since the specification of InfiniBand interconnect is(More)
