Argo: Operating System and Resource Management for Exascale
Argo will build portable, open source operating system/runtim components to improve the performance and scalability and to provide increased functionality to exascale applications.
We focus on the four areas of the OS/R stack where the need is the most urgent:
- Support for hierarchical memory
- Dynamic management of power and CPU clock speed to meet performance targets
- Containers for managing resources within a node,=
- Internode interfaces for collectively managing resources across groups of nodes
Our approach is to augment and optimize for HPC the existing open source offerings provided by vendors.
