Cray Inc. is an American supercomputer manufacturer headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The company's predecessor, Cray Research, Inc. , was founded in 1972 by computer designer Seymour Cray. Seymour Cray went on to form the spin-off Cray Computer Corporation , in 1989, which went bankrupt in 1995, while Cray Research was bought by SGI the next year. Cray Inc. was formed in 2000 when Tera Computer Company purchased the Cray Research Inc. business from SGI and adopted the name of its acquisition. Wikipedia.

Source Type

An optimization system to apply directives to a computer program without having to perform repeated front-end compilations of source code of the computer program is provided. In some embodiments, the optimization system performs a first compilation of the source code of the program to generate first front-end code and first back-end code of the computer program. The compilation includes a first front-end compilation and a first back-end compilation. The optimization system identifies a compiler directive to apply to a location within the first front-end code. The optimization system then performs a second back-end compilation of the first front-end code factoring in the compiler directive to generate second back-end code affected by the compiler directive.


In a large scale computing system, a supervisory system is utilized to monitor the operations and requests of multiple components, and to manage such requests so that overall power considerations for the entire system are considered. The supervisory system has the ability to identify requests and aggregations of simultaneous requests that will create an adverse power effect, and to apply overall control methodologies which will help to minimize these adverse effects.

Male subjects having an increased risk of developing Alzheimers disease are identified by determining a fraction of cells that have lost chromosome Y in a biological sample obtained from the male subject. The fraction is compared to a predefined threshold and the male subject is predicted to have an increased risk of developing Alzheimers disease based on the comparison between the fraction and the predefined threshold.

A resiliency system detects and corrects memory errors reported by a memory system of a computing system using previously stored error correction information. When a program stores data into a memory location, the resiliency system executing on the computing system generates and stores error correction information. When the program then executes a load instruction to retrieve the data from the memory location, the load instruction completes normally if there is no memory error. If, however, there is a memory error, the computing system passes control to the resiliency system (e.g., via a trap) to handle the memory error. The resiliency system retrieves the error correction information for the memory location and re-creates the data of the memory location. The resiliency system stores the data as if the load instruction had completed normally and passes control to the next instruction of the program.


Computer systems having heat exchangers for cooling computer components are disclosed herein. The computer systems include a computer cabinet having an air inlet, an air outlet spaced apart from the air inlet, and a plurality of computer module compartments positioned between the air inlet and the air outlet. The air inlet, the air outlet, and the computer module compartments define an air flow path through the computer cabinet. The computer systems also include a heat exchanger positioned between two adjacent computer module compartments. The heat exchanger includes a plurality of heat exchange elements canted relative to the air flow path.


To eliminate the adverse effects of power swings in a large scale computing system during the life cycle of an application or job, control of several operating characteristics for the collective group of processors is provided. By providing certain levels of coordination for the many processors utilized in large scale computing systems, significant and abrupt changes in power needs can be avoided. In certain circumstances, this may involve limiting the transition between several C-States of the processors involved and the overall power transitions for a large scale system are not detrimental and do not create issues for the data center or local power utility. Some cases will require stepped transitions between C-States, while other cases will include both stepped and modulated transitions. Other cases will incorporate random wait times at the various transitions in order to spread the power consumption involved. In yet further circumstances the C-States can be pinned to a specific setting, thus avoiding transitions caused by C-State transitions. To deal with further issues, the processor P-States can also be overridden.

A system and algorithm configured to generate diversity at the traffic source so that packets are uniformly distributed over all of the available paths, but to increase the likelihood of taking a minimal path with each hop the packet takes. This is achieved by configuring routing biases so as to prefer non-minimal paths at the injection point, but increasingly prefer minimal paths as the packet proceeds, referred to herein as Increasing Minimal Bias (IMB).

A method and system for detecting congestion in a network of nodes, abating the network congestion, and identifying the cause of the network congestion is provided. A congestion detection system may comprise a detection system, an abatement system, and a causation system. The detection system monitors the performance of network components such as the network interface controllers and tiles of routers to determine whether the network is congested such that a delay in delivering packets becomes unacceptable. Upon detecting that the network is congested, an abatement system abates the congestion by limiting the rate at which packets are injected into the network from the nodes. Upon detecting that the network is congested, a causation system may identify the job that is executing on a node that is the cause of the network congestion.
