Gedenken an Helmuth Wolf
[3227] Mar 28, 2018

* 30.12.1950     + 24.03.2018

Der HLRN-Verbund trauert um sein langjähriges Bremer Verwaltungsratsmitglied Helmuth Wolf. Es war ihm stets ein wichtiges Anliegen, der Spitzenforschung in Norddeutschland die notwendige Forschungsinfrastruktur, insbesondere Hochleistungsrechentechnik, bereitzustellen. So war es nur folgerichtig, dass er zu den Gründungsvätern des HLRN-Verbundes gehörte, welcher nach langjähriger Vorbereitung in 2001 an den Start gehen konnte. Den seit 17 Jahren erfolgreichen HLRN-Verbund hat Helmuth Wolf entscheidend mitgeprägt und für die Anerkennung seines überregionalen Wirkens gekämpft. Wir verlieren nicht nur einen engagierten Kollegen, sondern auch einen Freund. Unsere Gedanken sind bei seinen Angehörigen.

HLRN Parallel Programming Workshop Fall 2017, Oct 18-20 at ZIB Berlin
[3161] Sep 19, 2017

Recent Intel® Scalable processors (Skylake) and next-generation Intel CPUs feature large core counts, wide SIMD units (AVX-512) and high-bandwidth memory (e.g. on Intel Xeon Phi 7200 series - Knights Landing). Existing codes need to be modernized to take full advantage of the architectural features of these CPUs. Newly developed code should be designed to do so from the beginning.

We invite code developers to this 3-day workshop on advanced code optimization techniques on state-of-the-art and tomorrow`s multi- and many-core processors.

Date and time

October 18-20, 2017 at ZIB in Berlin

New Cray Development Toolkit CDT 16.12
[3077] Jan 13, 2017

The new Cray Development Toolkit CDT 16.12 is available for user test on both complexes Konrad and Gottfried.

CDT consists of Cray compilers, Cray Message Passing Toolkit (e.g. MPI), Cray performance tools (e.g. Perftools), libraries (e.g. LibSci, PETSc, Trilinos, FFTW), as well as the GNU Compiler Collection GCC, among others.

HLRN will switch all defaults in CDT from the current version to 16.12 on February 1, 2017 at 10:00.

Users that build and use their own code should test their build and execution chain with the new environment before February 1.

In order to do so call module load cdt/16.12 and rebuild your code.

Test the new executable in your batch job by loading the same module before the program call.
If your code uses dynamic shared libraries you need to add the line
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${CRAY_LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
before the call to aprun ....

In order to revert the shell environment to the current defaults, call module unload cdt/16.12 and follow the additional instructions.

Please notify HLRN Support if you experience any problems with the new development toolkit.

Hannover: MPP with reduced computing capacity on July 6 + 7th
[3024] Jun 30, 2016

We had to schedule a maintenance of the HLRN cooling system in Hannover starting Wednesday July 6th 2016 08:00 a.m. Servicing may take up to two days.

This means that computing power will be throttled back to about half the capacity of each MPP partition in Hannover during that time, resulting in prolonged queue wait times (but not run times) particularly for larger jobs. Other than that, the system should continue to run without restrictions.

No additional announcement will be made when the maintenance is finished (use the xtn command to check).

Important change of SSH authentication policy
[3012] Jun 01, 2016

This affects all HLRN Users.

A new SSH authentication policy will take effect on

Tuesday, June 14, 10:00.

Authentication will be handled only by Secure Shell keys after that point in time, and passwords can no longer be used for that purpose. At the same time you will be able to access HLRN via SSH from any host without restriction. Registration of access hosts will not be necessary anymore.

From June 14 on you will have to generate a Secure Shell key pair and upload the public key to HLRN via the Service Portal at https://zulassung.hlrn.de/, under item "Verwalten Ihrer Keys" / "Manage keys". You will need your HLRN password for uploading a key. Uploading is not possible before June 14.

Generation of keys and key usage is described in our topic on Pubkey Login:
https://www.hlrn.de/home/view/System3/PubkeyLogin .

In preparation for this switch the HLRN Service Portal https://zulassung.hlrn.de/ will be inaccessible on

Monday, June 13.

If have questions or encounter problems, please contact your HLRN consultant.

Enforcement of HLRN Email Policy
[3002] May 24, 2016

According to our published Email Policy HLRN requires all owners of an HLRN account to register together with it a valid email address from the institute, university or research organization they are affiliated with. This address identifies the user as a valid user of HLRN and must be used as sender address for all email to HLRN.

HLRN reserves the right to close an account immediately, when its registered email address becomes invalid (e.g. email is undeliverable).

In order to further improve security measures, HLRN will start now enforcing this policy by rejecting applications for new user accounts that have registered non-compliant email addresses, e.g. from email providers at (but not limited to) Google/gmail, Yahoo, Web.de, GMX, hotmail, and such. Contact HLRN user administration if you are unable to comply with the policy, but still require an HLRN account.

In a later phase HLRN will deal with existing user accounts that have non-compliant email addresses registered or users that use email addresses that differ from the registered one.

Thank you for your cooperation.

[2986] Apr 27, 2016

Einladung an alle HLRN/OpenFOAM Nutzer

Am 26.5.2016 von 10:00h-16:00h findet am ZARM (Fallturm Bremen) ein BremHLR / HLRN OpenFOAM Tuning Workshop statt. Zusammen mit Stephen Sachs von CRAY sollen Optimierungsmöglichkeiten von OpenFOAM auf dem HLRN direkt an eigenen Projekten realisiert werden.

Ziel dieses Workshops ist die Identifikation und Beseitigung von Bottlenecks in individuellen OpenFOAM Installationen und spezifische Anpassungen für das parallele Filesystem am HLRN.

Die interessierten Teilnehmer sollen kurz ihre OpenFOAM Projekte am HLRN oder auf lokalen Installationen bzgl. benötigter Ressourcen vorstellen. Zur besseren Vorbereitung des Workshops auf die individuellen Projekte kann man sein Projekt vorab auf einer Webseite beschreiben (verwendeter Compiler und Version, OpenFOAM Version, Anzahl Zellen, verwenderter Solver, kurze Problembeschreibung). Die Webseite ist mit einem Passwort versehen, was per Email bei bremhlr@uni-bremen.de erfragt werden kann.

Wer Interesse hat, meldet sich bitte bis zum 18. Mai 2016 per Email bei bremhlr@uni-bremen.de an.

Workshop-Daten:

Umweltphysiker Professor John P. Burrows von der Uni Bremen erhält Alfred Wegener Medaille
[2984] Apr 25, 2016

Professor John P. Burrows vom Institut für Umweltphysik / Institut für Fernerkundung der Universität Bremen wurde am 20. April 2016, während der Generalversammlung der European Geosciences Union (EGU) in Wien, die Alfred Wegener Medaille verliehen. Verbunden damit ist die lebenslange Ehrenmitgliedschaft der bedeutenden geowissenschaftlichen Gesellschaft.

Professor Burrows, der an der Universität Bremen die Abteilung für Atmosphärenphysik und Atmosphärenchemie leitet, ist in der weltweiten Wissenschaftsgemeinde für seine Beiträge zur Entwicklung und Anwendung von neuen Sensoren auf Satelliten bekannt. Sie dienen der Fernerkundung der Zusammensetzung der Erdatmosphäre. Die Messungen mit dieser Art von Geräten haben zu wichtigen Fortschritten im Verständnis der Chemie und der Dynamik der Atmosphäre und zu den Ursachen der Luftverschmutzung geführt. Die rechenaufwendige Auswertung und Aufbereitung der Satellitendaten erfolgt unter der Leitung von Professor Burrows auch im Rahmen von Grossprojekten auf den Rechnern des HLRN-Verbundes.

Hannover: XC30 ready again
[2966] Feb 25, 2016

The XC30 is ready for use again. We will refund jobs that were running on the mpp at the time of the crash. You do not need to contact HLRN for this except if you think something is still missing after Tuesday next week.

Just for clarity: the crash affected only the XC30.

The original message was:
-------------------------
Due to a problem with a defective optical link cable,
several cabinets of the XC30 in Hannover just have
crashed and the whole machine will need an immediate
reboot. We will see in what state it will come back up.

Jobs that were running at about 15:08 on the Cray will
almost certainly already have crashed and will therefore
automatically be reimbursed by HLRN. We are very sorry
for the inconvenience.
