Here are some notes and experiments relating to the Deep Dive Series. See also the indepth documentation at the Colfax Cluster Get Started Page.

  • At the time of writing this (Aug 2017), I only have visibility to a cluster of Knights Landing Cluster nodes - with Xeon Phi 7210 host processors with no coprocessors.
  • From what I gather, it is likely as we move towards 2018, we may have Knights Mill coprocessors attached to these Xeon Phi Knights Landing host processors.
  • Due to lack of visibility of coprocessors at this point, we may find some of the coprocessors related exercises not applicable (e.g. offloading some codes from Xeon Phi host to its coprocessors). It may however still worth watching the videos for these parts to get a feel how we may achieve parallelization with offloading.
