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.
