Dell CloudEdge C6145 Evaluation - US Atlas - Brookhaven National

Dell CloudEdge C6145 Evaluation - 01/05/2012Chris Hollowell RHIC/ATLAS Computing Facility - Brookhaven National LaboratoryA pre-production Dell CloudEdge C6145 server based on the AMD Interlagos processor wasevaluated for possible future procurement at the RHIC/ATLAS Computing Facility at BrookhavenNational Laboratory. The test system consisted of two independent (with the exception of a sharedpower supply) quad-processor motherboards in a 2U chassis. Several benchmarks were run on themachine, and compared to the performance of a Dell PowerEdge R410 server based on the IntelWestmere processor. For the purposes of our performance tests, only one of the motherboards in theC6145/Interlagos chassis was utilized.Detailed SpecificationsComponent Dell CloudEdge C6145 (2U) Dell PowerEdge R410 (1U)Processors4 AMD Opteron 6276 (Interlagos)processors @2.3 GHz2 Intel Xeon X5650 (Westmere)processors @2.67 GHzPhysical Cores 16 cores/processor = 64 6 cores/processor = 12Logical Cores No hyperthreading support = 64 Hyperthreading enabled = 24RAM 128 GB, 1333 MHz DDR3 48 GB, 1333 MHz DDR3Disk Configuration 8 500 GB SATA (3 Gbps, 7200RPM) Drives, RAID04 1 TB SATA (3 Gbps, 7200 RPM)Drives, RAID0NIC 1000baseT 1000baseTAn issue was encountered installing our Scientific Linux (SL) 5.3 OS on the C6145 host: theLSI SAS2008 disk controller was not supported by the install kernel. Therefore, we had to use SL 5.7installation images (with a stock updated mpt2sas driver) to install the system instead. HEPSPEC06and ATLAS software benchmarks were run on both the C6145 and R410 systems under SL5. Allinput/output was read/written to local disk in these tests. While the HEPSPEC06 results for the C6145were promising, the parallel ATLAS software benchmark results were somewhat poor for this system.HEPSPEC06 Benchmark (SL5, GCC 4.1.2)Dell PowerEdge R410 (Westmere) – 24 parallel processes (1/logical core) 192.73Dell CloudEdge C6145 (Interlagos) – 64 parallel processes (1/core) 472.36ATLAS Software Benchmarks (SL5, GCC 4.3.2)*Values are wall time to completion per average processSingle ProcessTest Dell CloudEdge C6145 (Interlagos) Dell PowerEdge R410 (Westmere)Setup 0:00:29 0:00:35EvtGen 0:01:36 0:01:25AtlasG4 0:25:40 0:16:33Digi 0:02:24 0:02:13Reco 0:10:22 0:10:05
