Columbia is a 10,240-processor supercluster consisting of 20 Altix nodes with 512 processors each, and currently ranked as the secondfastest computer in the world. In this papel; we present the performance chur-acteristics of Columbia obtained on up to four computing nodes interconnected via the InjiniBand .andor NU-MAlink4 communication fabrics. We(More)
The growing gap between sustained and peak performance for scientific applications is a well-known problem in high end computing. The recent development of parallel vector systems offers the potential to bridge this gap for many computational science codes and deliver a substantial increase in comput-ing capabilities. This paper examines the intranode(More)
—Resource sharing in commodity multicore processors can have a significant impact on the performance of production applications. In this paper we use a differential performance analysis methodology to quantify the costs of contention for resources in the memory hierarchy of several multicore processors used in high-end computers. In particular, by comparing(More)
The last decade has witnessed a rapid proliferation of su-perscalar cache-based microprocessors to build high-end capability and capacity computers primarily because of their generality, scalability, and cost effectiveness. However, the recent development of massively parallel vector systems is having a significant effect on the supercomputing landscape. In(More)

The overset grid methodology has significantly reduced time-to-solution of high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations about complex aerospace configurations. The solution process resolves the geometrical complexity of the problem domain by using separately generated but overlapping structured discretization grids that periodically exchange(More)
