We present the architecture of the Deep Computing Messaging Framework (DCMF), a message passing runtime designed for the Blue Gene/P machine and other HPC architectures. DCMF has been designed to easily support several programming paradigms such as the Message Passing Interface (MPI), Aggregate Remote Memory Copy Interface (ARMCI), Charm++, and others. This(More)
The MPI Forum has ratified extensions to MPI RMA with a new flexible and high performance passive target synchronization mechanism, new calls for window allocation and atomic operations executed on remote windows. In this paper, we explore an implementation of this new MPI-3.0 RMA interface on the Blue Gene/Q machine with performance results. We take(More)
This paper discusses the design and implementation of a one-sided communication interface for the IBM Blue Gene/L supercomputer. This interface facilitates ARMCI and the Global Arrays toolkit and can be used by other one-sided communication libraries. New protocols, interrupt driven communication, and compute node kernel enhancements were required to enable(More)

—MPI allows applications to treat processes as a logical collection of integer ranks for each MPI communicator, while internally translating these logical ranks into actual network addresses. In current MPI implementations the management and lookup of such network addresses use memory sizes that are proportional to the number of processes in each(More)
