2015 OLCF Users Conference Call: Wraprun
The OLCF hosts monthly User Conference Call. These calls are your opportunity to speak with center personnel to get the latest updates, express any concerns you may have, etc. No registration is required for this event.
Monthly Topic: Wraprun
Wraprun is a wrapper utility for ALPS/Aprun that bundles tasks into single aprun calls. It permits launching multiple independent instances of an application on singular nodes or even multiple unique applications on several nodes in a single aprun call. Bundling tasks reduces aprun overhead and allows more tasks to be started per batch job. Wraprun works with both MPI-aware and serial executables. We will give an overview of how it works, how to use it, and its limitations.
Speakers: Adam Simpson and Matt Belhorn
