100% Pure Community Project

HPC Knowledge Portal motivates new initiatives and collaborations in the HPC field, enabling fluent communication and interaction with key active members

of the HPC community


HPCKP thinks that the best way to ensure the quality and the objectivity of the articles is through peer review process. Hence, each article needs a minimum of two independent reviewers in order to be published at the HPCKP website.


There is no commercial banners or donation forms. HPCKP is developed by people who love the work they do and want to share their knowledge with the world.



At KU Leuven we set up a complete elasticsearch - logstash - kibana stack to monitor the hpc infrastructure.

Logfiles are shipped to a central location where they are parsed and indexed to our central elasticsearch cluster. This information is then presented trough a kibana web frontend. The web frontend allows system administrators and support engineers to easily search the logfiles of all compute nodes and login nodes. Job schedule information, abnormal behavior, executed commands, loaded modules, and many more information is now searchable through a simple web interface. Making a visual representation of the results is now only a matter of a few mouse clicks. Dashboards can be created for reporting and debugging purposes. All information can be accessed and used in real time.

This talk will give an overview of the technical setup and design constraints. Deployment of the infrastructure using our puppet and docker based infrastructure and to end it a real time demo of the analytics.


Speaker: Jo Vanvoorden

Location: Faculty of Physics (UB), C/ Martí i Franqués 1, 08028 Barcelona, Spain.


  • "A real must if you're a techie in the HPC World"

    I had the chance to attend one of the HPCKP events and one of the things I really liked was that it's Community driven and very technical. The organization was superb and best of all is all the great people you get to meet from all over the World, tech talks with particular cases being solved.

  • "These meetings are crucial for development and success."

    Training and continuous education activities help enhance employability and add value to the companies. It was a great experience because I had the chance to learn more and to share expertise and strategies in HPC with other professionals like me.
