Executive Summary
*****************
This document describes efforts deployed in order to exploit PRACE Pre-Comercial Procurment (PCP) machines. It aims at giving an overview of what can be done on in term of performances and energy analysis on this prototypes. The key focus have been given to a general study using the PRACE Unified European Application Benchmark Suite (UEABS) and a more detailed case study porting the HORSE+MaPHyS+PaStiX stack using cuting edge tools.

Introduction
************
The work produced within this task is driven by the delivery of PRACE PCP machines. It aims at giving manufacturer-independent performance and energy metrics for future Exascale systems. It is also an opportunity to explore and test cuting edge energy hardware stack and tool developped within the scope of PCP.
As stated in the Milestone 33, this document will present metrics for selected code among the UEABS. It allows to show results concerning many fields used used by European scientific communities. As well as it will go deeper in the porting and energetic profiling activities using the HORSE+MaPHyS+PaStiX stack as exemple.

Section :ref:`d77_cluster_specs` will details hardware and software specifications where metrics have been carried out. On section :ref:`d77_ueabs_metrics` the metrics for UEABS will be bring together. The work on porting and energy profiling will be presented in section :ref:`_d77_port_profile`. Section :ref:`d77_conclusion` will conclude and outline further work on PCP prototypes.

PCP = prototypes = fighting with currently in development soft/hardwares
PRACE PCP project include tree different prototypes using respectivly Xeon Phi, GPU and FPGA. First two machines become more and more common in HPC infrastructures, making the energy stack being the invovation. On the oposite the last architechture is brand new in this field making it harder get familliar with.
As you will see in the section :ref:`d77_machine_access` tight deadlines didn't let the time to produce relevant metrics on the FPGA cluster. This is why only GPU and KNL prototype are presented here.

Access to machines
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Working with prototypes can be painfull in term of project managment and meeting deadlines. This section is dedicated to give a feedback on accessing the hardware and software stack.
The timeline_ outlines the initial tight deadlines for this project. On top of that access to machines have been possible quite late during the phase for running codes.
