Grid RPC systems tests and analysis

We have led some tests of two Grid RPC systems (Ninf and NetSolve) functionality as well as the analysis of source codes for these systems. The results of the tests and analysis are collected in the internal SGIgrid project report. Please refer to the documents section.

Test environment

The test installation includes some supercomputers, clusters and workstations in Poznan and Gdansk. The list of testbed components is provided in the table below.

Libraries tests results

In a few weeks this part of the SGI project page will contain the results of timing the mathematical library function executions on the testbed nodes.
The timing tests are led in order to confirm the possibility of automatic detection of performance characteristics of the mathematical library code and a possibility to discover the performance-related characteristics of computing resources.
For more information concerning the concept of the mechanism for automatic discovering of code/machine performance features please refer to the PPAM conference paper in the
documents section.
