Overhead with using CCS scheduler using MPI RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm setting up a compute cluster that uses MPI to generate calculations on the fly in short amounts of time <3s. I was wondering what kind of overhead times I would possibly see if I submitted jobs using the CCP API, or should I just use the Cluster.ExecuteCommand method instead?

    If neither of these is a possibility because the overhead of the CCP framework is too large, is there a way to bypass that and still harness the power of the MPI.NET?

  • You may want to look at the 'parametric sweep' and 'SOA'/'WCF' features in the HPC documentation. Those both enable more calculations to be done without paying a full job submission penalty for each one.
