Performance Tests

In this section the results for different performance tests are presented.

Matrix diagonalisation

Libraries

Following MPI Versions and libraries were used:

qlogic:

  • vsc1: qlogicmpi_intel-0.1.0 (compiled with intel ifort)
  • vsc2: qlogicmpi_intel-3.0.1 (compiled with intel ifort)

mvapich2:

  • vsc1: mvapich2_intel_qlc-1.6 (compiled with intel ifort for qlogic)
  • vsc2: mvapich2_1.8a2_intel_limic (compiled with ifort and limic module)

impi:

  • vsc2: impi_4.0.1.007 (Intel MPI)

sca:

  • scalapack 2.0.0 compiled using INTEL ifort and GotoBLAS2,lapack-3.3.1

mkl:

  • vsc1: INTEL mkl libraries Version 11.1/046
  • vsc2: INTEL mkl libraries Versoin 2011_sp1.9.293

elpa:

Elpa was compiled using sca from above + mkl libraries; when using only mkl libraries BLACS errors occured.

Timings Blocksize 64

In a small test programm a Matrix of size N x N with N = 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 was randomly setup and diagonalized using PZHEEVX from SCALAPACK and solve_evp_complex_2stage from ELPA. The timings are only given for the diagonalization part.

For each number of cores all possible processor row/column combinations of row/cols = 1,2,4,8,16,32,64 were calculated. In the plotted data only the lowest times are presented.

Absolute timings of the different subroutines:

Scaling of the runtimes relative to the calculation with 16 cores:

Timings Blocksize optimized

For qlogic MPI we also tested the influence of different blocksizes on VSC-1 and VSC-2. The runs were performed as above, but the calculations were done for blocksizes = 2,4,8,16,32,64. The data in the plots and the tables represents the lowest obtained timings for a certain matrix size and number of used cores.
