HPC Vulnerabilities- Meltdown and Spectre
A new white paper written by Daniël Mantione, HPC System Architect at ClusterVision, addresses some of the implications of Meltdown and Spectre for HPC. These vulnerabilities have only been discovered recently, so information is still developing. Therefore, this document should not be interpreted as a complete overview of the situation but as an informative view of the potential impact on HPC.
ClusterVision experts already made several experiences on its clusters in order to analyse the impact of the kernel-patch on performance.
