PATC Course: Programming ARM based prototypes

May 17, 2013 9:00 am to May 17, 2013 3:00 pm

Get a comprehensive view of the architecture of the ARM-based prototypes at BSC (ARM multicore cluster and ARM+CUDA GPU cluster) and how to program these machines efficiently.

Learning Outcomes:
Understand how ARM multicore and ARM+GPU clusters work. Work with some example codes, compiling, debugging and executing trough system queues.
Get a global view of the machines with their specific configuration (Operating system, batch system, debuggers, compilers, how to access to the machines, how to use the resources, etc)


Course Outline:

Session 1 (2h):
1. The Montblanc Project
2. ARM based machines: Architecture Overview
3. Discussion

Lunch Break (13:00 to 14:00)

Session 2 (1h + 1h hands-on):

Using ARM based machines (How to get access, Job Execution, Support) ( 1:30h )

Session 3 (1h + 1h hands-on ):

Developing application on ARM based machines(GNU tool chain, examples, etc…)


Target group:

Standard HPC users, with recommended, but not required some knowledge in Tibidabo architecture.

Level: INTERMEDIATE: for trainees with some theoretical and practical knowledge (All courses are designed for specialists with at least finished 1st cycle degree)
