Section: New Software and Platforms

Platform: Grid'5000

Participants : Laurent Lefèvre, Simon Delamare, David Loup, Christian Perez.

Functional Description

The Grid'5000 experimental platform is a scientific instrument to support computer science research related to distributed systems, including parallel processing, high performance computing, cloud computing, operating systems, peer-to-peer systems and networks. It is distributed on 10 sites in France and Luxembourg, including Lyon. Grid'5000 is a unique platform as it offers to researchers many and varied hardware resources and a complete software stack to conduct complex experiments, ensure reproducibility and ease understanding of results. In 2018, a new generation of high speed wattmeters has been deployed on the Lyon site. They allow energy monitoring with up to 50 measurements per second. In parallel, a new version of kwapi (software stack for energy monitoring) has been proposed and redesigned.
