I/O Profiling to Improve Storage Performance at Diamond Light Source on an Altair Grid Engine Cluster

Read the White Paper

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron or particle accelerator. It works like a giant microscope, harnessing the power of electrons to produce bright light that scientists can use to study anything from fossils to jet engines to viruses and vaccines. Because Diamond Light Source handles a wider variety of workloads than many, performance of both in-house and third-party applications is vital. The team, which employs Altair® Grid Engine® for workload management, used Altair Mistral™ to identify straightforward improvements that could be made to improve performance and cut down runtime.
