Hierarchical high-performance storage system Testbed project at Sandia National Laboratories

Description: The Hierarchical High-Performance Storage System (HPSS) Testbed project at Sandia National Laboratories was part of a research collaboration between industry, national research centers, and national laboratories to develop mass storage system software that would scale to meet the capacity and performance required by supercomputer and massively parallel computational environments. This report describes the software that was developed within this collaboration as a result of a cooperative research and development agreement between Sandia National Laboratories and International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation, Government Systems.

NFS, Kerberos, and UNICOS

Description: The Network File System (NFS) is used in UNIX-based networks to provide transparent file sharing between heterogeneous systems. Although NFS is well-known for being weak in security, it is widely used and has become a de facto standard. This paper examines the user authentication shortcomings of NFS and the approach Sandia National Laboratories has taken to strengthen it with Kerberos. The implementation on a Cray Y-MP8/864 running UNICOS is described and resource/performance issues are discussed. 4 refs., 4 figs.

Performance modeling of network data services

Description: Networks at major computational organizations are becoming increasingly complex. The introduction of large massively parallel computers and supercomputers with gigabyte memories are requiring greater and greater bandwidth for network data transfers to widely dispersed clients. For networks to provide adequate data transfer services to high performance computers and remote users connected to them, the networking components must be optimized from a combination of internal and external performance criteria. This paper describes research done at Sandia National Laboratories to model network data services and to visualize the flow of data from source to sink when using the data services.

Architecture for Teraflop Visualization

Description: Sandia Laboratories' computational scientists are addressing a very important question: How do we get insight from the human combined with the computer-generated information? The answer inevitably leads to using scientific visualization. Going one technology leap further is teraflop visualization, where the computing model and interactive graphics are an integral whole to provide computing for insight. In order to implement our teraflop visualization architecture, all hardware installed or software coded will be based on open modules and dynamic extensibility principles. We will illustrate these concepts with examples in our three main research areas: (1) authoring content (the computer), (2) enhancing precision and resolution (the human), and (3) adding behaviors (the physics).
