High-Level Support for Pipeline Parallelism on Many-Core Architectures

Abstract : With the increasing architectural diversity of many-core architectures the challenges of parallel programming and code portability will sharply rise. The EU project PEPPHER addresses these issues with a component-based approach to application development on top of a task-parallel execution model. Central to this approach are multi-architectural components which encapsulate different implementation variants of application functionality tailored for different core types. An intelligent run-time system selects and dynamically schedules component implementation variants for efficient parallel execution on heterogeneous many-core architectures. On top of this model we have developed language, compiler and runtime support for a specific class of applications that can be expressed using the pipeline pattern. We propose C/C++ language annotations for specifying pipeline patterns and describe the associated compilation and runtime infrastructure. Experimental results indicate that with our high-level approach performance comparable to manual parallelization can be achieved.
