Abstract

This paper presents a system supporting reuse of simulation results in multi-experiment computational studies involving independent simulations and explores the benefits of such reuse. Using a SCIRun-based defibrillator device simulation code (DefibSim) and the SimX system for computational studies, this paper demonstrates how aggressive reuse between and within computational studies can enable interactive rates for such studies on a moderate-sized 128-node processor cluster; a brute-force approach to the problem would require two thousand nodes or more on a massively parallel machine for similar performance. Key to realizing these performance improvements is exploiting optimization opportunities that present themselves at the level of the overall workflow of the study as opposed to focusing on individual simulations. Such global optimization approaches are likely to become increasingly important with the shift towards interactive and universal parallel computing.
