TopCrunch Project Results for Mellanox Released

Feb. 26 — The HPC Advisory Council published a best practices paper showing record application performance for LS-DYNA Automotive Crash Simulation, one of the automotive industry’s most computational and network intensive applications for automotive design and safety.  The paper can be downloaded here: HPC Advisory Council : LS-Dyna Performance Benchmark and Profiling.

The LS-DYNA benchmarks were tested on a Dell PowerEdge R720 based-cluster comprised of 32 nodes and with networking provided by Mellanox Connect-IB 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapters and switch.  The results demonstrate that the combined solution delivers world-leading performance versus any given system at these sizes, or versus larger core count system based on Ethernet or proprietary interconnect solution based supercomputers.

The TopCrunch project (www.topcrunch.org) is used to track the aggregate performance trends of high performance computer systems and engineering software.  Rather than using a synthetic benchmark, actual engineering software applications are used with real datasets and run on high performance computer systems.

The performance testing was performed at the HPC Advisory Council High Performance Center. The center provides users and vendors with a unique capability to design, develop, test and qualify solutions for the HPC market. The center, located in California, operates 24/7 and provides secure remote access to its users.
