Well today it’s going to be a short one. For those of you out there who are like me and enjoy watching systems boot, I’ve recorded this brief (~3 minutes) bootup sequence of a dual-socket POWER9 based system.

NUMA on NINE with Spectrum LSF

NUMA (non-uniform memory access) has been written about ad nauseam. For those fans of POWER processors out there, we’ll show briefly in this blog what the NUMA looks like on a dual-socket POWER9 development system.

Intelligent HPC - Keeping Hard Work at Bay(es)

Since the dawn of time, humans have looked for ways to make their lives easier. Over the centuries human ingenuity has given us inventions such as the wheel and simple machines – which help greatly with tasks that would otherwise be extremely laborious.
