XALT: Tracking job-level activity on supercomputers
XALT is a tool that allows supercomputer support staff to collect and understand job-level information about the libraries and executables that end-users access during their jobs. The tool can also work with a system’s module software to provide additional information about module usage. XALT is a collaboration between Mark Fahey of the University of Chicago, formerly National Institute for Computational Sciences, and Robert McLay of the Texas Advanced Computing Center.
Ellexus is offering commercial support for XALT as part of our commitment to open source technology and collaboration. Come and talk to us if you would like help in installing and running XALT. We are able to offer a further range of professional services including custom integration and bug fixing.
XALT can be used in combination with Mistral to understand the I/O patterns of the jobs on your cluster as well as the dependency information from XALT.
