Abstract : GPUs clusters are becoming widespread HPC platforms. Ex- ploiting them is however challenging, as this requires two separate paradigms (MPI and CUDA or OpenCL) and careful load balancing due to node heterogeneity. Current paradigms usually either limit themselves to of- fload part of the computation and leave CPUs idle, or require static CPU/GPU work partitioning. We thus have previously proposed StarPU, a runtime system able to dynamically scheduling tasks within a single heterogeneous node. We show how we extended the task paradigm of StarPU with MPI to easily map the task graph on MPI clusters and automatically benefit from optimized execution.
