Sustained Petascale Performance of Seismic Simulations with SeisSol on SuperMUC

Breuer, Alexander, Alexander Heinecke, Sebastian Rettenberger, Michael Bader, Alice-Agnes Gabriel, and Christian Pelties (2014), Sustained Petascale Performance of Seismic Simulations with SeisSol on SuperMUC, in International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) Proceedings, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol. 8488, pp. 1-18, Springer International Publishing, doi:10.1007/978-3-319-07518-1_1, PRACE ISC Award Winning Paper.

Seismic simulations in realistic 3D Earth models require peta- or even exascale compute power to capture small-scale features of high relevance for scientific and industrial applications. In this paper, we present optimizations of SeisSol -- a seismic wave propagation solver based on the Arbitrary high-order accurate DERivative (ADER) Discontinuous Galerkin method on fully adaptive, unstructured tetrahedral meshes -- to run simulations under production conditions at petascale performance. Improvements cover the entire simulation chain: from an enhanced ADER time integration via highly scalable routines for mesh input up to hardware-aware optimization of the innermost sparse-/dense-matrix kernels. Strong and weak scaling studies on the SuperMUC machine demonstrated up to 90% parallel efficiency and 45% floating point peak efficiency on 147k cores. For a simulation under production conditions (10^8 grid cells, 4.8*10^10 degrees of freedom, 5 seconds simulated time), we achieved a sustained performance of 1.09~PFLOPS.
