A hybrid approach to parallel pattern discovery in C++
MetadataShow full item record
Parallel pattern libraries offer a strong combination of abstraction and performance. However, discovering places in sequential code where parallel patterns should be introduced is still highly non-trivial, often requiring expert manual analysis and profiling. We present a hybrid discovery technique to detect instances of parallel patterns in sequential code. This employs both static and dynamic trace-based analysis, together with hotspot detection. We evaluate our pattern discovery mechanism on a number of representative benchmarks. We evaluate the performance of the resulting parallelised benchmarks on a 24-core parallel machine.
