Integrated solution enables priority-based scheduling and lossless job suspension for optimized CAE workload management. Jaryba’s SmartSuspend™ integration with Altair’s PBS Professional® workload manager now supports Altair’s LM-X-based license manager, and Jaryba has validated the integration with Altair’s HyperWorks® suite of CAE applications and solvers.
Jaryba, Inc., a leading software provider for maximizing high-performance computing (HPC) resources, today announced the integration and support of Altair’s full suite of products, including HyperWorks® and Altair License Manager based on LM-X, with Jaryba SmartSuspend™, a safe, secure and lossless workload suspension capability.
The solution expands upon the existing integration of SmartSuspend™ with Altair’s PBS Professional®, a leading workload management product, by adding support for Altair’s licensing technology and validation with the HyperWorks suite of applications and solvers. As a result, computer-aided engineering (CAE) users now have a solution for lossless workload preemption, for better utilization of design and solver software with virtually no performance overhead.
“This announcement highlights our ability to work together not only to understand the challenges and demands facing the HPC community, but also to deliver a solution that is seamlessly tailored to meet these evolving needs,” said Rick Bayless, COO of Jaryba. “Our customers report that SmartSuspend has achieved upwards of 25% faster turnaround times on high priority workloads without jeopardizing lower priority work or software license usage. By adding support for Altair’s leading CAE and workload management suites, we are satisfying the market’s need for a comprehensive, optimized solution for CAE workload management.”
The integrated solution extends SmartSuspend’s capability of releasing software licenses during job suspension to support Altair’s LM-X-based licensing technology, thus providing HyperWorks users the ability to take full advantage of their software licenses by avoiding license waste while jobs are suspended.
“This integration means Altair customers can harness the full power and efficiency of SmartSuspend with PBS Professional and our HyperWorks applications,” said Sam Mahalingam, Altair’s senior vice president of enterprise products. “When Altair users need to suspend a job for higher-priority work or other reasons, they can suspend not only the CPU but also the memory and software licenses – they receive all of this back to re-utilize while the job is suspended. This is a true enhancement to the overall solution, helping users increase overall license utilization and thus the value of both their software and hardware.”
Jaryba SmartSuspend enables companies to more efficiently manage high-priority workloads. This is accomplished by using lossless preemptive scheduling, which releases all resources being held by a preempted job, while preserving all of the workload’s completed work as well as the value of the resources expended running up to the point of preemption. This capability also enables the consolidation of interactive and batch jobs.
