This book contains the revised selected papers of 4 workshops held in conjunction with the International Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC) in November 2017 in Denver, CO, USA, and in November 2018 in Dallas, TX, USA: the 6th and 7th International Workshop on Extreme-Scale Programming Tools, ESPT 2017 and ESPT 2018, and the 4th and 5th International Workshop on Visual Performance Analysis, VPA 2017 and VPA 2018. The 11 full papers of ESPT 2017 and ESPT 2018 and the 6 full papers of VPA 2017 and VPA 2018 were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in this book. The papers discuss the requirements for exascale-enabled tools as well as new approaches of applying visualization and visual analytic techniques to large-scale applications. Topics of interest include: programming tools; methodologies for performance engineering; tool technologies for extreme-scale challenges (e.g., scalability, resilience, power); tool support for accelerated architectures and large-scale multi-cores; tool infrastructures and environments; evolving/future application requirements for programming tools and technologies; application developer experiences with programming and performance tools; scalable displays of performance data; case studies demonstrating the use of performance visualization in practice; data models to enable scalable visualization; graph representation of unstructured performance data; presentation of high-dimensional data; visual correlations between multiple data sources; human-computer interfaces for exploring performance data; and multi-scale representations of performance data for visual exploration.

Highly recommended!´´ -Dr. Leonard Kleinrock University of California, Los Angeles ´´An entirely refreshing text which has just the right mixture of theory and real world practice. The book is ideal for both classroom instruction and self-study.´´ -Dr. Raymond L. Pickholtz President, IEEE Communications Society ´´An extraordinarily comprehensive treatment of both theoretical and practical issues.´´ -Dr. Jeffrey P. Buzen Internationally recognized performance analysis expert ´´. it is the most thorough book available to date´´ -Dr. Erol Gelenbe Université René Descartes, Paris ´´. an extraordinary book.. A worthy addition to the bookshelf of any practicing computer or communications engineer´´ -Dr. Vinton G. Cer??? Chairman, ACM SIGCOMM ´´This is an unusual object, a textbook that one wants to sit down and peruse. The prose is clear and fluent, but more important, it is witty.´´ -Allison Mankin The Mitre Washington Networking Center Newsletter
This book introduces a new scheduler to fairly and efficiently distribute system resources to many users of varying usage patterns compete for them in large shared computing environments. The Rawlsian Fair scheduler developed for this effort is shown to boost performance while reducing delay in high performance computing workloads of certain types including the following four types examined in this book: i. Class A - similar but complementary workloads ii. Class B - similar but steady vs intermittent workloads iii. Class C - Large vs small workloads iv. Class D - Large vs noise-like workloads This new scheduler achieves short-term fairness for small timescale demanding rapid response to varying workloads and usage profiles. Rawlsian Fair scheduler is shown to consistently benefit workload Classes C and D while it only benefits Classes A and B workloads where they become disproportionate as the number of users increases. A simulation framework, dSim, simulates the new Rawlsian Fair scheduling mechanism. The dSim helps achieve instantaneous fairness in High Performance Computing environments, effective utilization of computing resources, and user satisfaction through the Rawlsian Fair scheduler.
Maude is a language and system based on rewriting logic. In this comprehensive account, you´ll discover how Maude and its formal tool environment can be used in three mutually reinforcing ways: as a declarative programming language, as an executable formal specification language, and as a formal verification system. Examples used throughout the book illustrate key concepts, features, and the many practical uses of Maude.
This book provides basic and practical techniques of parallel computing and related methods of numerical analysis for researchers who conduct numerical calculation and simulation. Although the techniques provided in this book are field-independent, these methods can be used in fields such as physics, chemistry, biology, earth sciences, space science, meteorology, disaster prevention, and manufacturing. In particular, those who develop software code in these areas will find this book useful. The contents are suitable for graduate students and researchers in computational science rather than novices at programming or informed experts in computer science. Starting with an introduction to the recent trends in computer architecture and parallel processing, Chapter 1 explains the basic knowledge of speedup programs with simple examples of numerical computing. Chapters 2 - 4 detail the basics of parallel programming, the message passing interface (MPI), and OpenMP and discuss hybrid parallelization techniques. Showing an actual example of adaptation, Chapter 5 gives an overview of performance tuning and communication optimizations. To deal with dense matrix calculations, Chapter 6 details the basics and practice of linear algebra calculation libraries BLAS and LAPACK, including some examples that can be easily reproduced by readers using free software. Focusing on sparse matrix calculations, Chapter 7 explains high performance algorithms for numerical linear algebra. Chapter 8 introduces the fast Fourier transform in large-scale systems from the basics. Chapter 9 explains optimization and related topics such as debug methods and version control systems. Chapter 10 discusses techniques for increasing computation accuracy as an essential topic in numerical calculation. This is the first of the two volumes that grew out of a series of lectures in the K computer project in Japan. The second volume will focus on advanced techniques and examples of applications in materials science.
