Parallel Programming: for Multicore and Cluster Systems by Thomas Rauber, Gudula Rünger

By Thomas Rauber, Gudula Rünger

Innovations in structure, like hyper-threading or multicore processors, suggest that parallel computing assets can be found for cheap laptop pcs. in just many years, many commonplace software program items may be according to ideas of parallel programming carried out on such undefined, and the variety of functions can be a lot broader than that of clinical computing, in the past the most program quarter for parallel computing.

Rauber and Rünger take in those contemporary advancements in processor structure by way of giving special descriptions of parallel programming suggestions which are worthy for constructing effective courses for multicore processors in addition to for parallel cluster structures and supercomputers. Their publication is based in 3 major components, protecting all parts of parallel computing: the structure of parallel platforms, parallel programming types and environments, and the implementation of effective program algorithms. The emphasis lies on parallel programming options wanted for various architectures.

The major aim of the publication is to offer parallel programming suggestions that may be utilized in many occasions for plenty of program components and which allow the reader to advance right and effective parallel courses. Many examples and workouts are supplied to teach easy methods to follow the recommendations. The ebook can be utilized as either a textbook for college kids and a reference e-book for pros. The awarded fabric has been used for classes in parallel programming at diverse universities for lots of years.

L1 L2 L2 Memory Fig. 2 Pipelined Designs For a pipelined design, data elements are processed by multiple execution cores in a pipelined way. Data elements enter the processor chip via an input port and are passed successively through different cores until the processed data elements leave the last core and the entire processor chip via an output port, see Fig.

Investigations have shown that the simultaneous use of processor resources by two logical processors can lead to performance improvements between 15% and 30%, depending on the application program [119]. Since the processor resources are shared by the logical processors, it cannot be expected that the use of more than two 22 2 Parallel Computer Architecture logical processors can lead to a significant additional performance improvement. Therefore, SMT will likely be restricted to a small number of logical processors.

For a more detailed treatment of the architecture of multicore processors and further examples, we refer to [137, 84]. 5 Interconnection Networks A physical connection between the different components of a parallel system is provided by an interconnection network. Similar to control flow and data flow, see Sect. 2, or memory organization, see Sect. 3, the interconnection network can also be used for a classification of parallel systems.
