Expecting bit-for-bit reproducibility in the HPC arena is not feasible because of the ever changing hardware and software. No user’s application is an island; it lives in an ”HPC” eco-system that changes over time. Old hardware stops working and even old software won’t run on new hardware. Further, software libraries change over time either by changing the internals or even interfaces. So bit-for-bit reproducibility should not be expected. Rather a reasonable expectation is that results are… CONTINUE READING
