Objective

  • Manage dynamic data processing requirements at extreme scales using coordinated algorithm, middleware and resource layer adaptations

Target Applications

  • Dynamic AMR-based simulations such as the Polytropic Gas simulation for modeling tokomak edge plasma (part of Chombo developed by LBNL)

Data Management Challenges

  • Large and dynamically changing data volumes
  • Dynamic and imbalanced data distributions
  • Heterogeneous and dynamic resource (memory, CPU, etc.) requirements

Impact

  • Accelerated the data-to-insights process by up to 75% for a large-scale AMR-based simulation-analytic workflow
  • Reduced overall data movement between the AMR-based simulation and in-situ analytics by 45%
