Caelen Feller, a PRACE Summer of HPC (SoHPC) student working with Wee Archie, gives us an overview and status report of his project.
As I have said previously, I’m working with Wee ARCHIE, EPCC's mini supercomputer, this summer. Wee Archie is made of 16 Raspberry Pi chips – each very small, lightweight computers connected together to work as a single machine. With each chip is an attached LED panel, allowing me to display what is occurring on the chip and how it is communicating to other chips. I have created a series of tutorials and simple demonstrations to be run on Wee Archie which explain the basics of message passing using MPI to a complete novice in parallel computing and non-expert in computers in general.

PRACE Summer of HPC (SoHPC) offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late-stage undergraduates and/or Masters students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work. Here are the three SoHPC visitors who are collaborating on projects with EPCC staff.
