Improving MPI Independent Write Performance Using A Two-Stage Write-Behind Buffering Method

Abstract

Many large-scale production applications often have very long executions times and require periodic data checkpoints in order to save the state of the computation for program restart and/or tracing application progress. These write-only operations often dominate the overall application runtime, which makes them a good optimization target. Existing… (More)
