The current version of the HPCVL Working Template (HWT) is v5.3. The HWT provides an advanced toolkit for the parallelization of code, including Version Maintainance, Automatic Relative Debugging, and Simple Timing. The software may be accessed directly on our Sunfire cluster at /opt/hwt, which also contains an application example. The User's Manual can be downloaded here.

HPCVL is pleased to announce the availability of our Victoria Falls cluster. This cluster is based on Sun Microsystems 1.2GHz UltraSPARC T2+ processors which have eight CPU cores and each core capable of running eight “threads” simultaneously. This is an exciting development as it is the first massively Chip Multithreaded (CMT) installation fo r research in Canada and is a paradigm shift. Altogether there are approximately 10,000 threads available. For details see the HPCVL Victoria Falls Cluster page.

HPCVL is pleased to announce the installation of eight Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 systems. Each system has sixty-four 2.5 2 GHz quad-core SPARC 64 chips and 2 TB of RAM. The cluster has a TPP of over 20 TFLOPS of performance and will help research ers tackle new problems currently out of reach. For more information, check out our hardware page or Sun's website.
