Performance analysis is at the core of the development of exascale software – to understand why software performs (or not) is the basis of any informed improvement of that same code.
From 27-31 July 2020 the University of Sheffield RSE team, led by Dr Paul Richmond, ran an NVIDIA-sponsored GPU hackathon. In addition to NVIDIA's internal GPU Hackathon cluster the event took the opportunity to be test users of the new N8 Bede system.
Ensuring that researchers have the skills they need to maximise the benefits of high performance and high throughput computing is a significant part of the work of N8 CIR. This new survey will help us to ensure that researchers are able to develop these key skills across the partnership.
