Course: Efficient MD simulations at HPC2N

The aim of the course is to provide MD users with a set of best practices to improve the performance of their simulations. This will be accomplished by tuning the appropriate SLURM switches and flags proper to the MD packages.

Topics to be covered are:

  1. Performance analysis of different versions of the packages
  2. Performance analysis on different architectures (CPU, GPU, KNL)
  3. General recommendations when using plugins.

Coffee/tea will be provided.

  • By: bbrydsoe

The purpose of this course is to give a short overview of the most important aspects of OpenMP and MPI. The first half of the day will be focused on OpenMP and the second half of the day on MPI. There will also be a part on how to use profiling tools (VTune) to optimize your code.

If you are only interested in either OpenMP or MPI, it is possible to just attend the relevant part of the course.

Please bring your own laptop if you wish to participate in the hands-ons.

Lunch and coffee/tea will be provided.
