As the need for greater computing power becomes more apparent in the simulation of complex systems, the computers themselves have reached the limits of their fundamental designs. Sandia National Laboratories has initiated an ambitious project with the goal of simulating supercomputers to find and eliminate the bottlenecks inherent in current architectures. The goal of this Clinic project is to create an I/O node simulator that will be eventually integrated with Sandia’s larger project.
