How to use

How to use SQUID






  • Please see our press release issued on Nov 25 for a detail of SQUID.

  • Mr. Hashizume, Data Direct Networks Japan,introduced SQUID on PC Cluster Symposium 20th on 14 December 2020.

  • In the case that you plan to port your code running on the SX-ACE system to the one for SX-Aurora TSUBASA, you are advised to modifying a source code and collecting data related to your program running on SX-ACE in advance. The information is available from the the document below.
