The technology scaling towards the 10nm of the silicon manufacturing, is going to introduce variability challenges, mainly due to the growing susceptibility to thermal hot-spots and time-dependent variations (aging) in the silicon chip. The consequences are two-fold: a) unpredictable performance, b) unreliable computing resources. The goal of the HARPA(More)
The main goal of this article is to describe the online flood monitoring and prediction system Floreon primarily developed for the Moravian-Silesian region in the Czech Republic and the basic process it uses for running automatic rainfall-runoff and hydrodynamic simulations along with their calibration and uncertainty modeling. It takes a long time to(More)
In this paper, we propose a safety-critical system with a run-time resource management that is used to operate an application for flood monitoring and prediction. This application can run with different Quality of Service (QoS) levels depending on the current hydrometeorological situation. The system operation can follow two main scenarios standard or(More)
Power consumption is a critical consideration in high performance computing systems and it is becoming the limiting factor to build and operate Petascale and Exascale systems. When studying the power consumption of existing systems running HPC workloads, we find that power, energy and performance are closely related which leads to the possibility to(More)
Transistor miniaturization, combined with the dawn of novel switching semiconductor structures, calls for careful examination of the variability and aging of the computer fabric. Time-zero and time-dependent phenomena need to be carefully considered so that the dependability of digital systems can be guaranteed. Already, architectures contain many(More)
An increasing number of High-Performance Applications demand some form of time predictability, in particular in scenarios where correctness depends on both performance and timing requirements, and the failure to meet either of them is critical. Consequently, a more predictable HPC system is required, particularly for an emerging class of adaptive real-time(More)
This paper defines a methodology for the oracle selection of the monitors and knobs to use to configure an HPC system running a scientific application while satisfying the application’s requirements and not violating any system constraints. This methodology relies on a heuristic correlation analysis between requirements, monitors and knobs to determine the(More)
