|Early Experiences with the Cray T3E at the SDSC|
Joel E. Tohline and John Cazes
In response to a request we received from Jay Boisseau (boisseau@SDSC.EDU) in April, 1997, we provide here a broad overview of our early experiences porting a computational fluid dynamics code to the Cray T3E at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).
|Part I:||Background||[May 8, 1997]|
Parallel Platforms on which our code has been executed previously.
Timings on several different machines.
|Part II:||Scalability Using the Portland Group HPF Compiler (The Good News)||[May 8, 1997]|
Porting to the T3E.
|Part III:||Performance of DEC Alpha processors (The Bad News)||[June 6, 1997]|
The Bad News.
Single-Processor Test Results.
|Part IV:||Summary Points||[June 22, 1997]|
