Scaling Advantage Program Available for TCS Application Development
PITTSBURGH, May 29, 2003 The most important goal of the TCS program is to help computational scientists and engineers pose and solve research problems that can only be attacked if thousands of processors can be efficiently used together.
This is the rationale for our scheduling algorithm, which gives the highest priority to the largest of queued jobs and periodically drains the system to help large jobs find enough free processors to begin running.
To further assist our TCS users in the development of production codes and problems that will effectively and efficiently use at least 1000 processors on each single job, PSC is pleased to announce a new package of services and incentives.
It works as follows:
This program is available effective immediately.
The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a joint effort of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh together with the Westinghouse Electric Company. It was established in 1986 and is supported by several federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and private industry.
