Target Application

  • S3D combustion simulation (Jacqueline Chen and Hemanth Kolla, Sandia National Laboratory)
  • Goal: Identify flamefronts (a transient phenomena) at runtime in combustion simulations

Data Management Challenges

  • Develop capabilities for interactive queries with low latency, operating on live simulation results
  • Efficient data indexing and querying

Approach

  • Parallel in-memory indexing and querying on staging nodes
  • Support SQL-like query syntax and simple querying APIs
  • Flexible framework that can integrates different index techniques (currently using FastBit compressed bitmap index)

Impact

  • Efficiently support online runtime query-driven data analysis for extreme scale scientific simulations
  • In-memory approach improves both indexing time (up to 7x) and querying time (up to 35x)
