13th Graph500 List


Authors: Dr. Richard Murphy (Micron Technology Inc)

BP Abstract: Large-scale data analytics applications represent increasingly important workloads, but most of today's supercomputers are ill suited to them. Backed by a steering committee of over 30 international HPC experts from academia, industry, and national laboratories, Graph500 works to establish large-scale benchmarks that are representative of these workloads. This BOF will unveil the 13th Graph500 list, and an improved second benchmark. We will further explore the new energy metrics for the Green Graph500, and unveil the second Green Graph500 list.

Long Description: Large-scale data analytics applications represent increasingly important workloads but most of today's supercomputers are ill suited to them. Backed by a steering committee of over 30 international HPC experts from academia, industry, and national laboratories, Graph500 works to establish large-scale benchmarks that are representative of these workloads This BOF will unveil the 13th Graph500 list, and an improved second benchmark. We will further explore the new energy metrics for the Green Graph500, and unveil the second Green Graph500 list. The Graph500 addresses five graph related application areas: Cybersecurity, Medical Informatics, Data Enrichment, Social Networks, and Symbolic Networks The BoF will offer a forum for the community interested in these areas and provide a rallying point for data intensive supercomputing problems. The Graph500 Benchmark has already influenced the design and procurement of supercomputers for big data problems. The Graph500 list has grown from 9 entries in in November of 2010 to 211 Entries in June 2016. Additionally, the top machine’s performance has grown four orders of magnitude over that time, indicating significant investment in both hardware and software refinement for the benchmark.
