Quicksilver is proxy application for the Monte Carlo Transport code, Mercury. The purpose of the Quicksilver mini-app is to create a freely distributable code base that represents the key elements of the Mercury workload by solving a simplified time-dependent neutron transport problem. As an open source code, Quicksilver will be hosted on the CZ git/stash repo alongside other mini-apps in the ACS so-design suite. It will be used by vendors and other partners for co-design activities such as identifying root causes of Mercury performance bottlenecks on future architectures (i.e., memory bandwidth, memory latency, flop intensity) and developing Quicksilver will be used within LLNL as a nimble platform to evaluate programming models, algorithms, etc. that might be useful in Mercury. Quicksilver may also become a replacement for MCB in future procurement benchmarks, as well as a way to engage vendors in the Trinity and Sierra Centers of Excellence as well as other co-design efforts.
