Support from Dell Inc. for supercomputing visual analytics

April 20, 2019

Visualizing, monitoring, and predicting health status of HPC centers

This project proposes visual approaches for situational awareness and health monitoring of HPC systems:

  • Multidimensional analytics: allows us to detect visual patterns and correlations of various health services
  • Predictive analytics: Extract historical health services and provide main clusters/trends of the HPC system
  • User analytics: balance between automation and control

The work was developed in collaboration with both industrial and acadamic domain experts:

  • Dr. Yong Chen, Department of Computer Science, Texas Tech University.
  • Dr. Alan Sill, Managing Director of HPCC; Co-Director, NSF CAC.
  • Jon Hass, SW Architect at Dell Inc.; Chairman of the board, DMTF.

Students:

  • Ngan Nguyen, PhD student, Department of Computer Science, Texas Tech University.
  • Ghazanfar Ali, PhD student. Department of Computer Science, Texas Tech University.
