SGE 6.2u3

\* Sun Grid 6.2 Engine Update 3 is now an ideal building block for private clouds
\* Service Domain Manager (SDM) Cloud Adapter provides an interface to manage Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Amazon Machine Images (AMI). They support cloud-only and hybrid (local+cloud) Sun Grid Engine environments.
\* Initial Power Saving uses SDM (Service Domain Manager) to recommend powering off hosts in the cloud when demand is low. For the initial stage, the powering off is optional, not automatic , and creates a standby pool.
\* A new module SGE Inspect (Sun Grid Engine 6.2 Update 3 Inspect) provides a graphical monitoring interface for Sun Grid Engine clusters and Service Domain Manager instances, all in a single window.
\* Graphical Installer makes it much easier to install the Sun Grid Engine software and simplifies initial cluster or cloud setup with easy-to-navigate displays.
\* Exclusive Host Scheduling The cluster can be configured to allow jobs to request exclusive use of various components of a given execution host, An exclusive job will only be scheduled on execution hosts that have no jobs currently running. For a parallel job running on multiple machines, this rule applies for the slave tasks of the job as well.
\* Job Submission Verifier (JSV) is an automatic filter for the system administrator to control, enforce and adjust jobs submissions. The basic idea is that on both the client side and the server side, the administrator has the ability to configure scripts that can read through job submission options and accept, reject, or modify the job submission accordingly.
\* Scales up to 63,000 core CPUs

Sun Studio 12 U1

The latest production release includes improved binary application performance, full OpenMP 3.0 support, profiling of distributed MPI applications, unified application and system profiling using Solaris DTrace technology (DLight), a new standalone graphical debugger (dbxTool) and much more
C/C++/Fortran 95 Compilers
The Sun C, C++, and Fortran compilers include advanced features for developing applications on Sun Solaris SPARC and x86/x64 platforms. They utilize a common optimizing backend code generator, and accept standard C, C++, and Fortran with extensions.

The Sun Studio Performance Tools
The Sun Studio performance tools are designed to help answer questions about application performance. This article discusses the kinds of performance questions that users typically ask.

Debugging
Successful program debugging is more an art than a science. dbx is an interactive, source-level, post-mortem and real-time command-line debugging tool plus much more.

Performance Analyzer
The Sun Studio Performance Analyzer can help you assess the performance of your code, identify potential performance problems, and locate the part of the code where the problems occur. The Performance Analyzer can be used from the command line or from a graphical user interface.

Multithreaded (Parallel) Computing
Two critical forces are shaping the direction of software development. One is the deep adoption of parallel computing. The other is the move toward service-oriented architecture. But how prepared are the software developers and tool vendors for the challenge of working in parallel computing environments?

Performance Tuning and Optimization
Sun Studio C, C++, and Fortran compilers offer a rich set of compile-time options for specifying target hardware and advanced optimization techniques. But knowing which options to pick for a given application can be tricky.

Numerical Computation
The floating-point environment on Sun SPARC and x86/x64 platforms enables you to develop robust, high-performance, portable numerical applications. The floating-point environment can also help investigate unusual behavior of numerical programs written by others.

Sun Studio on Linux
The latest production release of Sun Studio 12 software has an IDE, performance analyzer, debugger, and better support for the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC). And, with the release of Sun Studio 12, Linux developers can now take advantage of Sun's world-class compilers and tools on the Linux platform.

Sun Performance Library
The Sun Performance Library is a set of optimized, high-speed mathematical subroutines for solving linear algebra and other numerically intensive problems. It is based on a collection of public domain applications available from Netlib. These public domain applications have been enchanced and optimized for Sun high-performance platforms.

High Performance Computing
High Performance and Technical Computing (HPTC) applies numerical computation techniques to highly complex scientific and engineering problems. Sun Studio compilers and tools provide a seamless, integrated environment from desktop to TeraFLOPS for both floating-point and data-intensive computing.

rockscluster 5.2 announce Solaris Clients

Rocks v5.2 is released for Linux on the i386 and x86_64 CPU architectures and for Solaris on the x86_64 architecture
Rocks v5.2 is released for Linux on the i386 and x86_64 CPU architectures and Solaris for the x86_64 architecture.
1. Solaris support for client nodes

With the new JumpStart Roll, one can now install and configure a Linux-based Rocks frontend to JumpStart Solaris-based back-end machines.
2. Attributes

Can assign attributes to nodes at four levels: global, appliance type, OS (e.g., Linux or SunOS), and host. An attribute can be accessed in an XML node as an entity. For example, if you assign the attribute foo with the value 123? to compute-0-0 (i.e., with the command, rocks set host attr foo 123?), then in an XML node file, you can access the value of the attribute foo with &foo;.

There will be Sun HPC cluster tool 8.2 roll and SunStudio 12u1 roll.
