WARFT India Supercomputer Education and Research initative (WISER initiative)
WARFT India Supercomputer Education and Research (WISER) initiative has led to the development of a Highly interesting and novel Super Computer Design Automation cum Simulation Software Suite. This involves Two levels of simuators :
WARFT India MAny Core Simulator (WIMACS) for designig power and performance efficient and cost effective heterogenous cores for grand challenge applications like brain modeling and molecular dynamics etc.
WARFT India MAny Core Simulator is scalabe towards a cluster level simulation which includes network processor and MPI fframework to form the WARFT India Cluster Simulator (WICS).
The initial version (1.0) of this simulator includes the WIMAC (beta version) and the Network Proessor simulation excluding the MPI framework.
Both the WIMACS and the WICS are based on CUstom Built hetErogeneous Multi-core ArCHitecture(CUBEMACH) design paradigm having a built Power-Performance optimizer and workload generator for evaluating the Power-Performance characteristics of the heterogeneous cores being designed. To support the open soure users, an extensive documentation has been prepared highlighting the new concepts involved in these simulators. A detailed description of various software modules, parameter customizability and code extendibility are presented in this documentation along with relevant references to papers published by WARFT and other related works.

The minimum system configuration for a minimalistic architectural configuration set in the beta version of the simulator are given below
Processor : Intel Pentium 4 processor or greater.
Memory : Minimum 2GB DDR3 or higher.
Operating system : Ubuntu 9 or higher or Linux Mint 12 or higher.
Sotware Requirement: GCC g++ Compiler version 4.7.3 or higher.
The procedure for Running and Obtaining Results from the simulator are explained in detail in the WISER Documentation .
NOTE : It suggested that the documentation be read before starting to work with the simulator.
