DescriptionThis paper proposes a virtual reality model for situational aware-ness and health monitoring of high-performance computing systems. The virtual reality model takes into account the following design requirements: 1) Mimicking data center spatial layout, 2) Tracking temporal changes, and 3) Monitoring multidimensional health statuses such as temperature, CPU load, memory usage, fan speed, and power consumption. To show the effectiveness of our design, we demonstrate the developed virtual reality model on a medium-scale high-performance computing system of 10 racks and 467 hosts at a university. The work was developed using weekly feedback from both industrial and academic domain experts.
