Information creation system for the

This tool allows to generate the io500_info_ variables for the ISC20 list.

Note that since this output will be part of the submission, all data will be public (not viable for embargo)

Values to generate

General information

SubmitterThe name of the submitter (or team), we will publish the name to acknowledge your contribution; when you select anonymous, we will treat the name confidentially
Include the result in the IO-500 ranked listCheck if you prefer to not include your result in the main ranked list. Your result will still appear in the full list.
Include the result in the 10 Node Challenge ranked listOnly applicable when using 10 nodes; shall we publish the results in the 10 node challenge sublist.

Site information

URL to the system at the Data Center List, create NEW!Optional
InstitutionThe abbreviation of the institution
Name of the systemThe name of the supercomputer which run the IO-500, if you use multiple systems concurrently, come up with a proper name
System classificationA production system provides services (e.g., in computational science) to end-users while a research system serves the purpose to research in computer science itself like novel system and storage architectures and is typically not open to end-users conducting computational science.
Storage install dateWhen was the storage installed; format: MM/YYYY
Storage refresh dateThe most recent date when the storage system underwent significant changes such as reformat or growth. format: MM/YYYY
Storage vendor
Name of the file system
Type of the filesysteme.g., BeeGFS, DataWarp, SpectrumScale, IME, Lustre, etc.
Filesystem versionThe general version, the file system is formatted with

Client information

Number of client nodes used
Processes per Client node
Operating system/brand on Clientse.g., Linux distribution, SUSE Linux
Operating system software version on Clientse.g. 12.3
Kernel version of Clientsaccording to uname -r, e.g., 4.15.0-30-generic

Metadata server information

Number of nodes
Number of storage devices in each metadata server
Type of the storage media in metadata serversSSD, HDD, NVMe, etc.
Volatile memory capacityCapacity of volatile memory in each metadata server
Storage interface used by the serverse.g. SAS, SATA, NVMe, etc
Network interconnect on the serverse.g. OPA, IB EDR, 40gigE, etc.
File system software version on the servers
Operating system software version on the serverse.g. 12.3
Overhead of resilience in %Ratio of raw storage capacity vs. usable capacity due to resilience methods like RAID6 (5+2 would have 2/7==29)
