ASCI terascale simulation environmental implementation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The ASCI Blue-Pacific Sustained Stewardship TeraOp/s computer demonstrated 1.2 TeraOP/s in September 1998. Two thirds of the system was delivered to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in early October 1999 and the remainder in December 1998. Since that time ASCI scientists have been performing ''full-system'' runs of remarkable scientific value in Quantum Chemistry, Biology, Molecular Dynamics, Turbulence, Neutron Transport and Astrophysics. In addition, there has been an intensive ASCI 3D physics simulation development effort. The SST also supports a large production workload. This paper focuses on the architecture of the Blue-Pacific SST, the integration of this platform into a full ... continued below

In addition, there has been an intensive ASCI 3D physics simulation development effort. The SST also supports a large production workload. This paper focuses on the architecture of the Blue-Pacific SST, the integration of this platform into a full simulation environment, full-system science runs and a discussion of the operational model for the SST.
