This dataset contains collected and aggregated network information from NCSA’s Blue Waters system, which is comprised of 27,648 nodes connected via Cray Gemini* 3D torus (dimension 24x24x24) interconnect, from Jan/01/2017 to May/31/2017. Network performance counters for links are exposed via Cray's gpcdr (<a href=""></a>) kernel module. Lightweight Distributed Metric Service ([LDMS](<a href=""></a>)) is used to sampled the performance counters at 60 second intervals. Please read "" file.

This dataset is collected as a part of the Blue Waters sustained-petascale computing project, which is supported by the National Science Foundation and the state of Illinois. Blue Waters is a joint effort of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and its National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
