Overview

ESSL for Linux on Power, 7.1 is a collection of mathematical subroutines that provide a wide range of mathematical functions for many different numerically intensive applications.

The primary characteristics are performance, functional capability, and usability. ESSL for Linux on Power, 7.1 provides MMA, which requires native Power10 mode and vector-scalar extension (VSX) versions of applicable subroutines and is tuned for performance on supported Power servers running RHEL 8.4, 8.6, or 9.0.

The ESSL subroutines are designed to provide high performance. To achieve this, the subroutines use innovative algorithms tailored to specific operational characteristics of the hardware, such as VSX, MMA, data caches, Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB), and memory.

Most subroutines use the following techniques to optimize performance:

  • ESSL subroutines are structured so, where applicable, the compiled code fully utilizes all floating-point, VSX, and MMA execution units and registers.
  • ESSL subroutines are structured so, where applicable, the compiled code takes full advantage of the hardware data prefetching, load and store units, and 16-byte and 32-byte load and store instructions.
  • Cache and TLB are efficiently managed so the hit ratios are maximized; that is, data is blocked so it stays in the cache or TLB for its computation.

The following LAPACK and LAPACKE subroutines, providing new functionality, have been added to ESSL for Linux on Power, 7.1:

  • CGGSVD3 and ZGGSVD3 (generalized singular value decomposition for complex general matrices)
  • CGEQP3 and ZGEQP3 (complex general matrix QR factorization)

PDF versionPDF

At a glance

IBM Spectrum® Storage delivers technology for software-defined storage that can dynamically and flexibly store data at optimal cost, helping maximize performance and ensure data protection. IBM Spectrum Archive, a member of the IBM Spectrum Storage family, incorporates the Linear Tape File System (LTFS) format to deliver an intuitive GUI for simplified access and management of files on tape as easily as if they were on hard disk, without the need for proprietary tape applications.

IBM Spectrum Archive Library Edition (LE) enables read, write, search, and indexing of user metadata, as well as access to data for midrange and enterprise tape libraries. Metadata is the descriptive information about user data stored on a cartridge and it enables searching and accessing of files through the GUI of the operating system. With graphic search, read, and write, it can be easier to write and read files using IBM Spectrum Archive LE as compared to using traditional tape management software. The expanded functionality of IBM Spectrum Archive LE provides LTFS Storage management capabilities for IBM-branded automation, drives, and media.

Overview

IBM Spectrum Archive LE software runs on the server to enable mounting of the library as a file system and the indexing of data, while the file manager manages the automation and provides operating system level access to all the content in the library. IBM Spectrum Archive LE is based on LTFS technology invented by IBM. In compliance with Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) LTFS Format Specification standard and its self-describing format, LTFS-formatted tape cartridges are 100% interchangeable within the IBM Spectrum Archive product family and other LTFS-based systems.

IBM Spectrum Archive LE is fully compatible with the IBM tape hardware product portfolio and supports the following tape library and tape drives:

  • IBM TS4300, TS4500, TS3500, TS3310, TS3200, and TS3100 tape libraries and IBM TS2900 tape autoloaders
  • TS11601, TS1150, and TS1140 tape drives
  • IBM Linear Tape-Open® (LTO®) 9, LTO 8, LTO-7, LTO-6, and LTO-5 tape drives
1 Excluding Ethernet attachment

These cartridges also support select third-party tape libraries. Clients with third-party tape libraries can order IBM Spectrum Archive LE software as a stand-alone product through IBM direct or an IBM Business Partner.
