OSC to Host Second Annual MUG Meeting

Aug. 14 — The 2nd annual MVAPICH User Group (MUG) meeting will be held this year from August 25-27. The MUG meeting provides an open forum for all attendees (users, system administrators, researchers, engineers, and students) to discuss and share their knowledge on using MVAPICH2, MVAPICH2-X, and MVAPICH2-GDR on large-scale systems and for a diverse set of applications. This year’s events include:

  • Talks from experts in the field
  • A half day tutorial: Optimization and Tuning of MPI and PGAS Applications using MVAPICH2 and MVAPICH2-X
  • Troublehooting guidelines
  • Contributed presentations
  • Open mic session
  • Interactive/hands-on session with the MVAPICH2 developers in a one-to-one manner to discuss issues and problems 

MVAPICH2 software, supporting MPI 3.0 standard, delivers best performance, scalability and fault tolerance for high-end computing systems and servers using InfiniBand, 10GigE/iWARP and RoCE networking technologies. This software is being used by more than 2,175 organizations world-wide in 72 countries (Current Users) to extract the potential of these emerging networking technologies for modern systems. This software is also being distributed by many InfiniBand, 10GigE/iWARP and RoCE vendors in their software distributions. MVAPICH2-X software package provides support for hybrid MPI+PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models with unified communication runtime for emerging exascale systems. MVAPICH2 software is powering several supercomputers in the TOP 500 list. Examples (from the June ’14 ranking) include:

  • 7th, 519,640-core (Stampede) at TACC
  • 13th, 74,358-core (Tsubame 2.5) at Tokyo Institute of Technology
  • 23rd, 96,192-core (Pleiades) at NASA


  • Keynote: Dan Stanzione (TACC)
