Parallelization of algorithms with hard data dependencies has a lack of task synchronization. Synchronous parallel versions are simple to model and program, but inefficient in terms of scalability and processors use rate. The same problem for or Asynchronous versions with elemental static task scheduling. Efficient Asynchronous algorithms implements out of order execution and are complex to model and execute. In this paper we introduce Petri Nets as a tool that simplifies the modeling and execution of parallel asynchronous versions of these kind of algorithms, while using an efficient dynamic task scheduling implementation. The Cholesky factorization algorithm was used as testbed. Simulations was done as a proof of concept, based on real execution times on GPGPU’s, and shows excellent performances.

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.
