This training will enable XRAC Principal Investigators to write better proposals by writing performance and scaling documents that improve their resource justifications. Topics to be covered are:
- Optimal use of Startup Allocation – what experiments to perform, what data to gather?
- Prototypical performance and scaling document: what needs to be presented? how should it be presented?
- Experimental plan and resource justification – what details should be included to provide a quality resource justification?
This training focuses on traditional HPC codes; later training will include details on non-traditional applications including, data-intensive codes and third party (including proprietary application) applications.
