Contexte This work is mostly an experimental one. The primary goal is to be capable to conduct intensive experimental tests of an already existing parallel and distributed application on a large variety of heterogeneous computing infrastructures. This non embarassingly parallel scientific application is a numerical simulation of electromagnetic wawes propagation. The runtime has been developed in the ANR funded project DiscoGRID ending mid 2009. It is based upon GCM components and ProActive library, plus a C++ library wrapping Fortran MPI processes. The last phase of the project is to show experimental results that demonstrate that the original hierarchical SPMD way for parallel programming is really effective: easier to use than pure Fortran/MPI, showing at least similar performances than using directly grid-aware MPI implementations, while offering more flexibility.
Objectifs
Description du travail
  • Study the ProActive framework and understand its main concepts
  • - Study the existing DiscoGRID framework and SPMD parallel simulation application
  • - Develop a new version, using Java NIO to optimize Java/Native communications
  • - and run the old and new apps. in priority on Grid'5000
  • - compare with performances obtained when running the pure Fortran MPI version,on MPICH or GridMPI implementations
  • - Study how to submit jobs on the ProActive VO of EGEE
  • - Study how to submit jobs on Amazon EC2 using ProActive
  • - Study how to submit jobs on the ProActive p2p desktop grid
  • - Identify and solve problems if any raised by the joint use of machines coming from those infrastructures
