This research aims to accelerate the computation of the Kleene star in max-plus algebra using CUDA technology on graphics processing units (GPUs). The target module is the Kleene star of a weighted adjacency matrix for directed acyclic graph (DAGs) which plays an essential role in calculating the earliest and/or latest schedule for a class of discrete event systems. In recent NVIDIA GPU cards, an environment for high performance computing is provided to general developers, for which we aim to exploit the benefit of using GPUs. Using an NVIDIA Tesla C2075 for our experiments, we obtained approximately a 30-fold speedup compared with an Intel Xeon E5645.

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
