Abstract: Scientific in-situ workflows, i.e., executing the entire application workflows on the HPC system, have emerged as an attractive approach to address data-related challenges by moving computations closer to the data, and staging-based frameworks have been effectively used to support in-situ workflows at scale. However, running in-situ scientific workflows on extreme-scale computing systems presents fault tolerance challenges which significantly affect the correctness and performance of workflows. This presentation addresses challenges related to data resilience and fault tolerance for in-situ scientific workflows, and makes the following contributions. Firstly, I present CoREC, a scalable resilient in-memory data staging runtime to support the data resilience for large-scale in-situ workflows. Then, I present a staging based error detection approach which leverages idle computation resource in data staging to enable timely detection and recovery from silent data corruption. Finally, I present a loose coupled checkpoint/restart with data logging framework to provide a scalable and flexible fault tolerance scheme for in-situ workflows while still maintaining the data consistency and low resiliency cost.
