In this post address the question that’s been on everyone’s mind; Can you run a state-of-the-art Large Language Model on-prem? With *your* data and *your* hardware? At a reasonable cost?
This is a short note on setting up the Apache web server to allow system users to create personal websites and web apps in their home directories.
NVIDIA GTC 2023 was outstanding! To say that about a virtual conference tells you how much I value it. This post is largely a catalog of the talks I found interesting along with titles that I think will be interesting to a larger audience and my colleagues at Puget Systems.
This post is a short HowTo on passing Linux kernel boot options during OS installation and persisting them for future system starts
I was prompted to do some testing by a commenter on one of my recent posts. They had concerns about problems with dual NVIDIA RTX4090s on AMD Threadripper Pro platforms. I ran some applications to reproduce the problems reported above and tried to dig deeper into the issues with more extensive testing. The included table below tells all!
This post is a first-look at performance of the Ryzen7 7950x CPU using the latest AMD compiler release with support for Zen4 arch including AVX512 vector instructions. Performance is tested using the HPC standard benchmarks, HPL (High Performance Linpack), HPCG (High Performance Conjugate Gradient) and the newer HPC Top500 benchmark, HPL-MxP (formerly HPL-AI).
Learning go (Golang) is one of my resolutions for 2023. It looks like a great cross platform compiled language with a straightforward simple syntax with modern features. I have multi-OS projects in mind where I expect it to be ideal. So, I’ll get started …
AMD has recently released version 4.0 of their AOCC compiler which includes support for AVX512 on the Zen4 architecture. This post details building a Docker image containing the Spack package manager/build system together with AMD AOCCv4.0.0 compilers. This will be used as the build image for multi-stage Dockerfiles that will be used to compile scientific applications and benchmarks with targeted Zen3/4 optimizations. It is the first step in that process.
This post is a follow up to How-To: Make Ubuntu Autoinstall ISO with Cloud-init written in Sept. 2021. We will look at changes needed for Ubuntu 22.04.
This post presents preliminary ML-AI and Scientific application performance results comparing NVIDIA RTX 4090 and RTX 3090 GPUs. These are early results using the NVIDIA CUDA 11.8 driver.
