Sarkar, V. This book present two approaches to automatic partitioning and scheduling to execute the same parallel program efficiently on widely different multiprocessors.

Parallel computing is a type of computation in which many calculations or the execution of processes are carried out simultaneously. Large problems can often be divided into smaller ones, which can then be solved at the same time

Parallel computing is a type of computation in which many calculations or the execution of processes are carried out simultaneously. Large problems can often be divided into smaller ones, which can then be solved at the same time. There are several different forms of parallel computing: bit-level, instruction-level, data, and task parallelism.

A parallel program is composed of multiple proc-esses, each of which is to perform one or more tasks defined by the program more. A parallel program is composed of multiple proc-esses, each of which is to perform one or more tasks defined by the program. The optimization objective for partitioning is to balance the workload among processes and to minimize the interprocess communication needs.

Compared to serial computing, parallel computing is much better suited for . May also be referred to as the Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) model.

Compared to serial computing, parallel computing is much better suited for modeling, simulating and understanding complex, real world phenomena. For short running parallel programs, there can actually be a decrease in performance compared to a similar serial implementation. The overhead costs associated with setting up the parallel environment, task creation, communications and task termination can comprise a significant portion of the total execution time for short runs.

The literature on parallel computing indicates that the choice of a scheduling heuristic can have a significant effect on the parallel speed-up (or slow-down) that is achieved for a given application 3. 4 on a particular machine configuration. The input programs for our experiments were based on real programs and not on randomly generated task graphs. Had we chosen a different partitioning scheme, we likely would have produced completely different results.

Parallel databases were de-signed for relational algebra manipulations (. SQL) where the communication graph is implicit. Large input les are typically partitioned and distributed across the computers of the cluster

Parallel databases were de-signed for relational algebra manipulations (. By contrast, the Dryad system allows the developer ne control over the communication graph as well as the subrou-tines that live at its vertices. Large input les are typically partitioned and distributed across the computers of the cluster. It is therefore natural to group a logical input into a graph G VP, ∅, ∅, VP where VP is a sequence of virtual vertices corresponding to the partitions of the input. Similarly on job completion a set of output partitions can be logically concatenated to form a single named distributed le.

This book is one of the first to address the problem of forming useful parallelism from potential parallelism and to provide a general solution. The book presents two approaches to automatic partitioning and scheduling so that the same parallel program can be made to execute efficiently on widely different multiprocessors. The first approach is based on a macro dataflow model in which the program is partitioned into tasks at compile time and the tasks are scheduled on processors at run time. The second approach is based on a compile time scheduling model, where both the partitioning and scheduling are performed at compile time. Both approaches have been implemented in partition programs written in the single assignment language SISAL. The inputs to the partitioning and scheduling algorithms are a graphical representation of the parallel program and a list of parameters describing the target multiprocessor. Execution profile information is used to derive compile-time estimates of execution times and data sizes in the program. Both the macro dataflow and compile-time scheduling problems are expressed as optimization problems and are shown to be NP complete in the strong sense. Efficient approximation algorithms for these problems are presented. Finally, the effectiveness of the partitioning and scheduling algorithms is studied by multiprocessor simulations of various SISAL benchmark programs for different target multiprocessor parameters.
