The theory, practice, and a tool for BSP performance prediction applied to a CFD application

Abstract:

The Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) model provides a theoretical framework to accurately predict the execution time of parallel programs. In this paper we describe a BSP programming library that has been developed, and contrast two approaches to analysing performance: (1) a pencil and paper method with a theoretical cost model; (2) a profiling tool that analyses trace information generated during program execution. These approaches are evaluated on an industrial application code that solves f...
