Abstract:We evaluated our proposed I/O optimizations, namely active buffering and the GODIVA framework, with both synthetic benchmarks and real-world applications, including simulations and visualization tools. The performance study shows that our proposed techniques can significantly reduce the application-visible periodic I/O cost. Further, our experience of deploying these techniques in state-of-the-art simulation and visualization codes demonstrates that with careful design, our techniques for hiding I/O costs can be organically combined with mechanisms for performing adaptive performance optimization, application self-configuration, and effective data management.
