The CLAMR code is a cell-based adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) mini-app developed as a testbed for hybrid algorithm development using MPI and OpenCL GPU code.

Contributions to CLAMR are welcomed as long as they do not substantially change the nature of the code.
To build the CLAMR executables. CLAMR now used cmake for its builds
// In-tree build cmake . // out-of-tree build cmake
// Optimized build (part optimized RelWithDebInfo is default) cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release . // Graphics options (OpenGL is the default) cmake -DGRAPHICS_TYPE=[None|OpenGL|MPE]
There are two real-time graphics packages. The default is OpenGL. An alternative real-time graphics package uses MPE. To use this package, configure with "cmake -DGRAPHICS_TYPE=MPE". The OpenGL option is automatically turned off when selecting MPE. MPE is part of the MPICH package from Argonne National Laboratory. It usually is not on a system and will need to be installed. A setup script and version 1.9.1 of the MPE package are available in the download directory.
Seven executables are currently built. The first four are "standalone" versions which run one implementation of the routines
clamr: Calls the MPI/GPU versions of each call. Option to check the results against other verisons
clamr_gpuonly: Calls the GPU versions of each call. Option to check the results against the cpu calls
clamr_cpuonly: Calls the CPU versions of each call. Option to check the results against the gpu calls
clamr_mpionly: Calls the MPI versions of each call. Option to check the results against the cpu calls
Check versions. These versions run multiple implementations and check correctness of the implementations
clamr_gpucheck: Calls the GPU and CPU versions of each call and checks the results against each other
clamr_mpicheck: Calls the CPU and MPI/CPU versions of each call and checks the results against each other
clamr_checkall: Calls the GPU, CPU, MPI and GPU/MPI versions of each call and checks the results against each other.
More executables are planned
Currently the executables run only on NVIDIA GPUs. Fixing the kernels to run on ATI GPUs and MIC is of great interest
The numerical algorithm still does not handle "dry" conditions properly and will crash
Many other limitations exist -- coarsening has not been implemented and boundary conditions need some more work
Current performance shows about a 30x speedup on the GPU versus the CPU using NVIDIA Tesla 2090s and Intel CPUs
