ACCESS Collaboration with NVIDIA: GPU Monitoring Tools to Maximize Application Performance and System Utilization Workshop

Event Date
05/01/2023 - 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM EDT

OSC Workshop Series with NVIDIA & ACCESS

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in collaboration with NVIDIA & ACCESS will host a workshop on Monday, May 1, 2023 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m US Eastern Time.

In this tutorial you will learn about the Data Center GPU Management (DCGM) tools and how they can be used to collect a broad set of runtime data for GPUs including compute engine and memory utilization, tensor core utilization, and NVLINK data. We will demonstrate how to collect telemetry data on individual jobs, run GPU diagnostics to verify health and performance, and generate a test load on a GPU. After attending this tutorial, you will be able to determine how an application or job is utilizing a GPU (or GPUs), possibly leading to code changes to improve performance or a reassignment of a job to more appropriate resources.
