Performance Modeling

The mission of the SDSC Performance Modeling and Characterization (PMaC) laboratory is to bring scientific rigor to the prediction and understanding of factors affecting the performance of current and projected HPC platforms.

PMaC is funded by the Department of Energy (SciDac PERC research grant), the Department of Defense (NAVO MSRC PET program), DARPA, and the National Science Foundation's STI (Strategic Technologies for the Internet) program. The steering committee of the HPC Users Forum advocates for project guidance on behalf of researchers.
