The window-based stream join is an important operator in all data streaming systems. It has often high resource requirements so that many efficient sequential as well as parallel versions of it were proposed in the literature. The parallel stream join operators recently gain increasing interest because hardware is getting more and more parallel. Most of these operators, however, are only optimized for processors with homogeneous execution units (e.g., multi-core processors). Newly available processors with heterogeneous execution units cannot be exploited whereas such processors provide typically a very high peak performance. In this paper, we propose an initial variant of a window-based stream join operator that is optimized for processors with heterogeneous execution units. We provide an efficient load balancing approach to utilize all available execution units of a processor and further provide highly-optimized kernels that run on them. On our test machine with a 4-core CPU and an integrated graphics processor, our operator achievesaspeedup of 69.2x compared to our single-threaded implementation.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
