Monitoring SLE HPC 15 with Prometheus and Grafana

While developing SUSE Linux Enterprise HPC 15 SP2, we have been working on adding new monitoring possibilities for our HPC product. As HPC systems monitoring has evolved, lately there has been a tendency to use the same system to monitor all company resources.  This is where applications like Prometheus have become increasingly omnipresent, especially […]

PDSH, SLE, and SLURM

Managing many systems from one is a basic need for system administrators. A need which has obvious development commonality judging from the myriad tools available that delegate work to other systems. Often the criteria used to target systems for management is understandably inflexible. Directory service management consoles and configuration management systems are good examples of […]

Lunar Vacation Planning

The moon’s surface is not exactly a vacation spot – with no atmosphere, a gloomy gray landscape, average temperatures around -300 degrees Fahrenheit, and a lengthy 5-day, 250,000-mile commute from Earth.  Yet, being able to use our Moon as a stepping-stone towards Mars and beyond is essential and the research we can […]

Deploying SLURM PAM modules on SLE compute nodes

Security in High Performance Computing (HPC) environments has always been a proposal of relativity. Striking a balance between implementing an adequate level of security and not interfering with “getting the science done”. In the simplest terms the primary security realms HPC systems and clusters are exposed to are environmental and user facing. More specifically […]

Seeing Further – HPC Inspires LRZ

One of our most recent success stories combines the efforts of SUSE, Lenovo and Intel at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (Leibniz Rechenzentrum, or LRZ). The new SuperMUC-NG installation provides LRZ with 26.7 petaflop computing capacity in a smaller data center footprint with drastically reduced energy usage and cost. What’s more interesting to me […]

Artful Tiering – Extending the reach of HPC with SES

Artful Tiering – Extending the reach of HPC with SUSE Enterprise Storage. Have you noticed that everything about the high-performance computing environment is big: hundreds, even thousands of processors generating millions of CPU cycles. And it generates a lot of data. It doesn’t take long to realize that data storage is an important component […]
