Current LANL GSN Activities
We are now very confident of GSN’s capabilities!
We have moved GSN into production on Nirvana
- 2 GSN adapters in each of 16 128 p SMPs (Origin 2Ks)
- Single 32 port switch, soon to go to two switches
- BDS and LibST have been installed
- No problems, and users have been delighted!
- We get almost as good performance going to remote disks as accessing local disks
- ~440 MB/s (local) as compared to ~420 MB/s (remote)
- We have a couple of users who are ready to run on LibST
- Awaiting latest release……
