This paper demonstrates Medusa, a programming framework for parallel graph processing on graphics processors (GPUs). Medusa enables developers to leverage the massive parallelism and other hardware features of GPUs by writing sequential C/C++ code for a small set of APIs. This simplifies the implementation of parallel graph processing on the GPU. The runtime system of Medusa automatically executes the user-defined APIs in parallel on the GPU, with a series of graph-centric optimizations based on the architecture features of GPUs. We will demonstrate the steps of developing GPU-based graph processing algorithms with Medusa, and the superior performance of Medusa with both real-world and synthetic datasets.

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: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • 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: AMD APP SDK 2.9
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.0.1, AMD APP SDK 2.9

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
