Windows HPC, SOA and MPI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am new to Windows HPC and I am doing some research on an issue.
    I have a an interactive application and I am basing it on SOA.
    I do know tha I can run Job in conjunction with MPI.NET and
    I am trying to understand if it is possible to use SOA in conjunction with MPI.NET ?
    Can I start service and use MPI.NET from it ?

    From your description, SOA looks like the right programming model

  • Hi Fastsol,

    Can you provide details what kind of problem you are trying to resolve by combining SOA service with MPI.Net?

    Basically, SOA and MPI are designed for different HPC programming models.  SOA is for task parallel and MPI is for data parallel.
    I am not aware of a way to do MPI.Net in SOA service so that the different service processes can talk to each other.

    My problem is this: I have an iterative search problem, each iteration I need to distribute the task among the nodes.
    I though of using SOA by creating a session and distributing the tasks, I cannot use jobs because each node has a long start up time,
    about couple of second and average task time around couple second too. I thought of using a long sessions to perform this search.
    Another solution that I am thinking of is using a log jobs and use MPI inside, but I really don't wont to loose the Win HPC recovery on the task level.
    In addition because the development isn't started yet and I am at the choosing state I do want to leave my options open. That is why I was asking about MPI.
