The DL_POLYMolecular Dynamics Simulation Package W. Smith Computational Science and Engineering Department CCLRC Daresbury Laboratory Warrington WA4 4AD DL_POLY Background
  • General purpose parallel MD code
  • Developed at Daresbury Laboratory for CCP5 1994-today
  • Available free of charge (under licence) to University researchers world-wide
  • DL_POLY Versions
  • DL_POLY_2
  • Replicated Data, up to 30,000 atoms
  • Full force field and molecular description
  • DL_POLY_3
  • Domain Decomposition, up to 1,000,000 atoms
  • Full force field but no rigid body description.
  • Initialize Initialize Initialize Initialize Forces Forces Forces Forces Motion Motion Motion Motion Statistics Statistics Statistics Statistics Summary Summary Summary Summary Replicated Data Advantages Simple to implement Reasonable scaling Good load balancing Dynamic load balancing possible (not much help!) Complex forcefields easy Highly portable (+MPI) Disadvantages Large RAM requirement High comms overhead Suboptimal scaling Unsuitable for massive parallelism Replicated Data MD B A C D Domain Decomposition Advantages Local comms Good load balancing Distributed RAM requirement Good scaling Handles BIG systems (~106 atoms !) Dynamic load balancing possible Disadvantages Short potential cut off Parallel mapping problems Complex force fields non trivial Suboptimal scaling for small domains Domain Decomposition MD DL_POLY Force Field (a)

  • Register, then PI sends notification
  • Get userid & password from HPCx website
  • Login
  • ssh -l userid -X
  • Tools
  • emacs, vi, loadleveller...
  • Compiling DL_POLY on HPCx
  • Copy Makefile from `build’ to`source’
  • Use `make hpcx’ to compile
  • Executable in `execute’ directory
  • DLPOLY.X is DL_POLY_2 executable
  • DLPOLY.Y is DL_POLY_3 executable
  • Standard executables available on major platforms
  • Running DL_POLY on HPCx
  • Script:
  • #@ wall_clock_limit = 00:59:00 #@ account_no = xxxx # #@ output = $(job_name).$(schedd_host).$(jobid).out #@ error = $(job_name).$(schedd_host).$(jobid).err #@ notification = never # #@ queue # export MP_SHARED_MEMORY=yes poe ./DLPOLY.Y #@ shell = /bin/ksh # #@ job_type = parallel #@ job_name = gopoly # #@ tasks_per_node = 8 #@ node = 8 # #@ node_usage = not shared #@ network.MPI = csss,shared,US # Running DL_POLY on HPCx
