Swimming in the data lake

Data lake is a storage of large quantities of data that has little to no structure. It combines data from different sources that were originally not intended to be a part of a bigger monitoring infrastructure. In the case of

Read this if you want your computer to run your applications faster [Difficulty: Easy]

[Video] Hi from Dublin everybody! Welcome back to my blog or welcome for newcomers. If you have missed it, my previous blog post is available here! No worries, there is no need to read it before this one to understand

How do you use a supercomputer?

To be honest, this post should have been written before the previous one. But as they say, better late than never. If the previous post consisted of describing the theoretical principles behind an aerodynamics simulation, this one is going to

Change of plans

So… Remember the test environment setup I was working on last time? I had to drop it last week. The PCOCC installation took me some time and a lot of patience, but it did run through at the end. Unfortunately,

Is benzene a nanotube?

Of course not, but I have input for benzene and I did the first tests of the electron density computation on this system. Before showing the results (Pretty figures!), I would like to tell you about the helical symmetry (something

Making Waves

This week, I show how I created animations for collective communications and moved them to Wee Archie (with videos) and introduce the wave simulator. I’ll talk about issues with my system on Wee Archie and how this will affect my goals going forwards. Make sure not to miss the cute …

Nanotube-laboratory in a computer

I spent the first few weeks at Computing Centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences getting familiar with the nanotube code. We actually changed the goal of the project a bit. The original plan was the further development of the

Can’t `$ touch this`: Containerisation on permissioned HPC systems using Singularity

In my previous blog post, I discussed the advantages of containerisation when it comes to reproducibility. In short, if you package all of the tools necessary to run your experiments, you can ensure that in future, folk can rerun your

How to know if your Deep Learning Algorithm actually learned anything

Hello from Luxembourg. If you read my previous post, you may be aware that this is where I’ll be spending my summer as part of the PRACE Summer of HPC programme. The official title for the project I’ll be doing

We arrived at BSC; now what?

It was only recently that I realized this experience called SoHPC is already midway through and since it has been almost an entire month that I have been silent I decided to drop a few lines in order to give

Removing the data processing ‘bird’en with Spark

Greetings dear audience. Sorry that I’ve been a little radio-silent over the last week. I guess you could say I dropped off the radar. Read on for another riveting installation of ‘Allison’s summer of HPC’. It’s hard to believe, but

Understanding the basic principles

During my first three weeks at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) the material was mainly introductory to many different and interesting topics. I was firstly introduced to the topic of processors. I got myself familiar with the main architecture and

Building a supercomputer in a cloud

With my second week ending here at SURFsara, I’ve learned quite a bit about the background of my project and those insights have been very interesting, so I thought I’d share them with you! On a usual supercomputer, networks and

Brief introduction​: STFC Hartree.

Much has happened since my previous post ( ) and I have been quite overwhelmed. Finally, I have found some time to evaluate the last two weeks and share my experience with you. The STFC-Hartree centre is my new
