High Performance Computing

High Performance Systems Lab has been actively developing algorithms and systems for a variety of challenging problems in parallel and grid computing. Recent focus has been on performance prediction in unpredictable environments. The approach taken is based on Performance Skeletons that provide nearly instant execution time estimates with direct monitored execution, Another emerging direction is high performance truly parallel computing on idles desktops under Volpex (Parallel Execution on Volatile Nodes) project. Other recent projects have spanned, network bandwidth prediction, network based computing, and web caching.
