SmartApps: An Application Centric Approach to High Performance Computing
State-of-the-art run-time systems are a poor match to diverse, dynamic distributed applications because they are designed to provide support to a wide variety of applications, without much customization to individual specific requirements. Little or no guiding information flows directly from the application to the run-time system to allow the latter to fully tailor its services to the application. As a result, the performance is disappointing. To address this problem, we propose application-centric computing, or SMART APPLICATIONS.In the executable of smart applications, the compiler embeds most run-time system services, and a performance-optimizing feedback loop that monitors the application's performance and adaptively reconfigures the application and the OS/hardware platform. At run-time, after incorporating the code's input and the system's resources and state, the SmartApp performs a global optimization. This optimization is instance specific and thus much more trac...
