  • Savu uses MPI for parallelization. At Diamond each MPI process uses a separate GPU (exclusive access). GPU can be set to non-exclusive access mode, and Savu allows different processes to access same GPU. Hence many smaller GPUs not necessary (in practice having more than four in a workstation is difficult).
  • Possibly best trade-off: Two mid-range GPUs instead of one high-end. Would probably allow same or more FLOPs with same budget, and allows to experiment with multi-GPU use, relevant for massively scaling up on SCARF/Emerald clusters with many GPUs.
  • In the end, unclear whether decision was to still wait a bit for some Savu tests to happen in the next months before acquiring workstations, or given that workstations will be only for proof of concept, can proceed to acquire soon.

  • Would be good to get ISIS-IMAT datasets soon to experiment with. Winfried Kochelmann has offered access during the current commissioning time for us to acquire data sets. Timing good before fall when users start coming.
