Integrating State of the Art Compute, Communication, and Autotuning Strategies to Multiply the Performance of the Application Programm CPMD for Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulations

  title={Integrating State of the Art Compute, Communication, and Autotuning Strategies to Multiply the Performance of the Application Programm CPMD for Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulations},
  author={Tobias Kl{\"o}ffel and Gerald Mathias and Bernd Meyer},
We present our recent code modernizations of the of the ab initio molecular dynamics program CPMD (this http URL) with a special focus on the ultra-soft pseudopotential (USPP) code path. Following the internal instrumentation of CPMD, all time critical routines have been revised to maximize the computational throughput and to minimize the communication overhead for optimal performance. Throughout the program missing hybrid MPI+OpenMP parallelization has been added to optimize scaling. For…

This work presents strategies that have been used toently map the Car{Parrinello algorithm in the CPMD code to two emerging high-performance computing hardware platforms, namely, clustered shared-memory parallel servers and ultra-dense massively parallel computers, such as e.g. the IBM BlueGene/L.

Atomic wavefunction initialization in ab initio molecular dynamics using distributed Lanczos

It is shown that the massively parallel BG/L supercomputer with its very fast separate network for collective communications is an ideal platform for the parallel Lanczos algorithm and the new scheme is implemented in the popular plane-wave code CPMD.
