17th Graph500 List

Abstract: Data intensive supercomputer applications are increasingly important workloads, especially for “Big Data” problems, but are ill suited for most of today’s computing platforms (at any scale!). The Graph500 list has grown to over 239 entries and has demonstrated the challenges of even simple analytics. The new SSSP kernel introduced at SC17 has increased the benchmark’s overall difficulty. This BOF will unveil the Graph500 lists, discuss the new streaming kernel, and enhance the new energy metrics the Green Graph500. It will offer a forum for community and provide a rallying point for data intensive supercomputing problems.

Long Description: Data intensive supercomputer applications are increasingly important workloads, especially for “Big Data” problems, but are ill suited for most of today’s computing platforms (at any scale!). The Graph500 list has grown to over 239 entries and has demonstrated the challenges of even simple analytics. The new SSSP kernel introduced at SC17 has increased the benchmark’s overall difficulty and grown significantly. Backed by a steering committee of 30 international HPC experts from academia, industry, and national laboratories, this effort serves to enhance data intensive workloads for the community. This BOF will unveil the Graph500 list, including the new SSSP list, and enhance the new energy metrics the Green Graph500. It will offer a forum for community and provide a rallying point for data intensive supercomputing problems. In this BOF we will explore emerging streaming graph applications, the results from the new kernel, the creation of a larger community infrastructure for analytics benchmarks and analysis, and the results of the latest list. Graph500 is the first serious approach to complement the Top 500 with data intensive applications.

We will introduce a series of interactive questions in this year’s BOF and plan to seed the community with a discussion of new initiatives, including the creation of multiple new benchmarks (having launched the SSSP benchmark at the SC17 list). We are inviting several centers to contribute new research results on the SSSP and forthcoming streaming algorithm and to seed additional community interaction at the BOF.

We expect significant new announcements at this BOF.
