Exascale Proxy Applications

Project Status: Active

The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is a strategic move toward the effective deployment and use of exascale computing to solve important problems. Large, complex software will run on the supercomputers resulting from ECP. One facet of the effort is the Exascale Proxy Applications Project which focuses on software applications that, while retaining the relevant character of the larger ECP applications, simplify some of the other aspects. This makes the proxy applications ideal for exercising, characterizing, and comparing prototypes of the supercomputers that are currently in development, including at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, and at Cray's datacenter in Wisconsin. Our work includes the evaluation of the included development toolchains for HPC software, such as debuggers and profilers.
