    Parallel, scientific applications running on massively parallel supercomputers commonly produce large numbers of large data files. While parallel filesystems improve the performance of file generation, post-processing activities such as archiving and compressing the data or performing routine format transformations are often run sequentially (and therefore slowly), squandering the supercomputer's ...

    HPC user support teams invest a lot of time and effort in installing scientific software for their users. A well-established practice is providing environment modules to make it easy for users to set up their working environment. Several problems remain, however: user support teams lack appropriate tools to manage a scientific software stack easily and consistently, and users still struggle to set... View full abstract»
