S4BXI: the MPI-ready Portals 4 Simulator


We present a simulator for High Performance Computing (HPC) interconnection networks. It models Portals 4, a standard low-level API for communication, and it allows running unmodified applications that use higher-level network APIs such as the Message Passing Interface (MPI). It is based on SimGrid, a framework used to build single-threaded simulators based on a cooperative actor model. Unlike existing tools like SMPI, we rely on an actual MPI implementation, hence our simulation takes into account MPI's implementation details in the performance. This paper also presents a case study using the BullSequana eXascale Interconnect (BXI) made by Atos, which highlights how such a simulator can help design space exploration (DSE) for new interconnects.
