Storage Node Simulation for a Supercomputer

Sandia National Laboratories Computer Science, 2006-07

Advisor(s): Geoff Kuenning
Students(s): Jonathan Beall, Kapy Kangombe, Andrew Taylor, Daniel Turner (PM)

Sandia Labs is building a simulator to simulate the cpu, network, and storage components of a supercomputer. The Clinic team has worked on the simulation of the storage nodes, adopting last year’s storage-node simulator as a starting point. They are updating the file system and DiskSim, a hard disk simulator, to make the simulator more accurate. The team will also perform additional validation of the simulator.
