Driven by the rapid hardware development of parallel CPU/GPU architectures, we have witnessed emerging relational query processing techniques and implementations on those parallel architectures. However, most of those implementations are not portable across different architectures, because they are usually developed from scratch and target at a specific architecture. This paper proposes a kernel-adapter based design (OmniDB), a portable yet efficient query processor on parallel CPU/GPU architectures. OmniDB attempts to develop an extensible query processing kernel (qKernel) based on an abstract model for parallel architectures, and to leverage an architecture-specific layer (adapter) to make qKernel be aware of the target architecture. The goal of OmniDB is to maximize the common functionality in qKernel so that the development and maintenance efforts for adapters are minimized across different architectures. In this demo, we demonstrate our initial efforts in implementing OmniDB, and present the preliminary results on the portability and efficiency

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
