Virtualized LNET Routing for Multi-Fabric Lustre Deployments

SESSION: Moving, Managing, and Storing Data

EVENT TYPE: Exhibits, Exhibitor Forums

EVENT TAG(S): Moving, Managing, and Storing Data

TIME: 11:00AM - 11:30AM


Presenter(s):Daniel Rodwell



NCI has installed 30PB of high-performance storage, presented as multiple Lustre filesystems across the facility, which includes the Fujitsu Primergy 57,000 core (Intel Sandy-Bridge) HPC system known as Raijin.

To provide world-class research storage capabilities that are both scalable and reliable, NCI has architected an InfiniBand fabric design that is highly performing and resilient. As part of this architecture, a cost-to-performance effective method of scaling LNET routing was required to link the storage and HPC systems.

This presentation will discuss the architecture of NCI’s InfiniBand fabrics, the implementation of Virtualized LNET routing for presenting NCI’s Lustre filesystems across the facility, and a performance comparison with traditional bare-metal LNET routing approaches.
