Heterogeneous Parallel Computing Across Multidomain Clusters

Heterogeneous Parallel Computing Across Multidomain Clusters
We propose lightweight middleware solutions that facilitate and simplify the execution of MPI programs across multidomain clusters. The system described in this paper leverages H2O, a distributed metacomputing framework, to route MPI message passing across heterogeneous aggregates located in different administrative or network domains. MPI programs instantiate a specially written H2O pluglet; messages that are destined for remote sites are intercepted and transparently forwarded to their final destinations. The software was written and tested in a simulated environment, with a focus on clusters behind firewalls. Qualitatively it was demonstrated that the proposed technique is indeed effective in enabling communication across firewalls by MPI programs. In addition, tests showed only a small drop in performance, acceptable considering the substantial added functionality of sharing new resources across different administrative domains.
