The CHARISMA Project (1993-1996)

The CHARISMA project began in June 1993 (at DAGS'93) to CHARacterize I/O in Scientific Multiprocessor Applications from a variety of production parallel computing platforms and sites. The CHARISMA project is unique in recording individual read and write requests in live, multiprogramming, parallel workloads (rather than from selected or non-parallel applications).

The project is finished, i.e., there is no work currently underway and none planned.
