Robust Memory-Aware Mappings for Parallel Multifrontal Factorizations

Abstract : We study the memory scalability of the parallel multifrontal factorization of sparse matrices. We illustrate why commonly used mapping strategies (e.g. proportional mapping) cannot achieve a high memory efficiency. We propose a class of "memory-aware' algorithms that aim at maximizing performance under memory constraints. These algorithms provide both accurate memory predictions and a robust solver. We illustrate our approach with experiments performed on large matrices with the MUMPS solver.
