X-ScaleSolutions presented a tutorial and live demo of their newest software offering, MVAPICH2-DPU MPI library at the MVAPICH User Group (MUG) conference. The tutorial, Accelerating HPC and AI Applications with MVAPICH2-DPU, X-ScaleHPL-DPU and X-ScaleAI-DPU Packages Live Demos, gave an overview of the MVAPICH2-DPU library. The MVAPICH2-DPU library takes advantage of the DPU features to offload communication components in the MPI library and accelerates HPC applications. It integrates key components enabling full computation and communication overlap, especially with non-blocking collectives. This tutorial provided an overview of the MVAPICH2-DPU product, main features, and acceleration capabilities for a set of representative HPC and AI applications and benchmarks. Live demos of these applications demonstrated the capabilities of the MVAPICH2-DPU MPI library. The tutorial was led by Dr. Donglai Dai, Chief Engineer, Kyle Schaefer, Software Engineer.
In addition, Dr. Donglai Dai gave a talk titled Accelerating HPC and DL Applications using the MVAPICH2-DPU, X-ScaleHPL-DPU, and X-ScaleAI-DPU Packages. This talk presented an overview of the software architectures of MVAPICH2-DPU, X-ScaleAI and X-ScaleHPL-DPU products, and discussed the underlying designs and benefits.

MUG provides an open forum for all attendees to discuss and share their knowledge about MVAPICH libraries, including MVAPICH-Plus, MVAPICH2-X, MVAPICH2-GDR, MVAPICH2-X-Azure, and MVAPICH2-X-AWS, OSU Micro-Benchmarks, and OSU INAM on large-scale systems and for a diverse set of applications. This year’s event drew over 225 attendees.
