Performance Conscious High Performance Computing PeCoH
In PeCoH, we establish the Hamburg HPC Competence Center (HHCC), which coordinates and fosters joint performance engineering activities between the local compute centers DKRZ, RRZ and TUHH. Together, we will implement user services to support performance engineering on a basic level, provide a basis for co-development, user education and dissemination of performance engineering concepts. We will evaluate methods to raise user awareness for performance engineering and bring them into production environments. Specifically, we address cost-awareness, provide success stories, advance HPC competence management resulting in a certification system, and assess the benefit of alternative workflows. Material and tools developed in the course of this project are made available under open source licenses to foster the re-use in the research community.
