Maximizing Throughput of Overprovisioned HPC Data Centers Under a Strict Power Budget

SESSION: Power and Energy Efficiency


TIME: 10:30AM - 11:00AM


AUTHOR(S):Osman Sarood, Akhil Langer, Abhishek Gupta, Laxmikant V. Kale



Increasing power consumption is one of the biggest challenges towards achieving the next scale of supercomputers. In this paper, we propose an integer programming based online resource manager, PARM, for data centers with a fixed power budget. PARM determines the optimal allocation of resources to the jobs including CPU power and number of nodes. It leverages the hardware capability of constraining power consumption of nodes, in such a way that the throughput of the data center is maximized for a given power budget. PARM is also capable of dynamically shrinking and expanding the number of nodes of malleable running jobs - a characteristic that further improves its throughput. For resource allocation, it uses the essential power characteristics of the jobs determined by the proposed power-aware performance model. Our results show up to 5.2X improvement in throughput when compared to the power-oblivious SLURM resource manager.
