Abstract

Development and testing of the Photon messaging library

Intellectual Merit

Photon extends state of the art techniques in high-performance messaging and collective operations.

Broader Impacts

Improvement in point to point and collective communication has impact on domain science applications in HPC and Big Data systems.

Scale of Use

Small scale development use with larger-scale benchmarking runs that would ideally use the entire system for a short period.
