Jaguar | TOP500 Supercomputing Sites

National Center for Computational Sciences � Jaguar


Jaguar is the primary system in the ORNL Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF).

XT5 Partition
The XT5 partition contains 18,688 compute nodes in addition to dedicated login/service nodes. Each compute node contains dual hex-core AMD Opteron 2435 (Istanbul) processors running at 2.6GHz, 16GB of DDR2-800 memory, and a SeaStar 2+ router. The resulting partition contains 224,256 processing cores, 300TB of memory, and a peak performance of 2.3 petaflop/s (2.3 quadrillion floating point operations per second).
XT4 Partition
The XT4 partition contains 7,832 compute nodes in addition to dedicated login/service nodes. Each compute node contains a quad-core AMD Opteron 1354 (Budapest) processor running at 2.1 GHz, 8 GB of DDR2-800 memory (some nodes use DDR2-667 memory), and a SeaStar2 router. The resulting partition contains 31,328 processing cores, more than 62 TB of memory, over 600 TB of disk space, and a peak performance of 263 teraflop/s (263 trillion floating point operations per second).
The SeaStar2+ router (XT5 partition) has a peak bandwidth of 57.6GB/s, while the SeaStar2 router (XT4 partition) has a peak bandwidth of 45.6GB/s. The routers are connected in a 3D torus topology, which provides an interconnect with very high bandwidth, low latency, and extreme scalability.
The operating system for Jaguar is the Cray Linux Environment. This consists of a full-featured version of Linux on the service nodes and the Compute Node Linux micro-kernel on the compute nodes. The micro-kernel is designed to minimize partition overhead allowing scalable, low-latency global communications.
