Stampede Early User Training

Host Site:


Host site URL:

This training is restricted to those users in the Stampede Early User Program. Training for all XSEDE or TACC users will be held on January 10th-11th 2013.

Early users: Please contact TACC for the registration password.

The Stampede supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center will become available in early 2013, and will be the first system to deploy at scale the Intel Xeon Phi CoProcessor. Stampede will provide nearly 10 petaflops of peak performance, and become the new flagship system of the US National Science Foundation’s XSEDE Cyberinfrastructure.

Stampede will provide more than 100,000 cores and 2PF of Intel Xeon E5 “Sandy Bridge” processors, and an additional 7+ PF of Intel Xeon Phi CoProcessors. In this tutorial, we will introduce the Stampede architecture, and cover how to achieve performance using both the conventional processors as well as the coprocessors. This tutorial will be focused on users in the early user program, and will cover the changes in the Stampede user environment from previous TACC users, and discuss optimizations that users may wish to make to existing MPI and OpenMP codes to take full advantage of Stampede.

Topics will include:
-Stampede architecture overview
-Intel Xeon Phi CoProcessor overview
-Programming models for Stampede, including offload, symmetric, and native modes.
-The Stampede user environment, including the batch system, compiler environment, application modules, etc.
-Performance tuning on Stampede, including vectorization and offload extensions for OpenMP
-Hands-on exercises with Stampede.
