Enhancing productivity and performance portability of OpenCL applications on heterogeneous systems using runtime optimizations

Initially driven by a strong need for increased computational performance in science and engineering, heterogeneous systems have become ubiquitous and they are getting increasingly complex. The single processor era has been replaced with multi-core processors, which have quickly been surrounded by satellite devices aiming to increase the throughput of the entire system. These auxiliary devices, […]

Input Space Splitting for OpenCL

The performance of OpenCL programs suffers from memory and control flow divergence. Therefore, OpenCL compilers employ static analyses to identify non-divergent control flow and memory accesses in order to produce faster code. However, divergence is often input-dependent, hence can be observed for some, but not all inputs. In these cases, vectorizing compilers have to generate […]

Hadoop Mapreduce OpenCL Plugin

Modern systems generates huge amounts of information right from areas like finance, telematics, healthcare, IOT devices to name a few, the modern day computing frameworks like Mapreduce needs an ever increasing amount of computing power to sort, arrange and generate insights from the data. This project is an attempt to harness the power of heterogeneous […]

Automatic Command Queue Scheduling for Task-Parallel Workloads in OpenCL

OpenCL is a portable interface that can be used to program cluster nodes with heterogeneous compute devices. The OpenCL specification tightly binds its workflow abstraction, or "command queue", to a specific device for the entire program. For best performance, the user has to find the ideal queue-device mapping at command queue creation time, an effort […]

VirtCL: a framework for OpenCL device abstraction and management

The interest in using multiple graphics processing units (GPUs) to accelerate applications has increased in recent years. However, the existing heterogeneous programming models (e.g., OpenCL) abstract details of GPU devices at the per-device level and require programmers to explicitly schedule their kernel tasks on a system equipped with multiple GPU devices. Unfortunately, multiple applications running […]

Automatic and portable mapping of data parallel programs to OpenCL for GPU-based heterogeneous systems

General purpose GPU based systems are highly attractive as they give potentially massive performance at little cost. Realizing such potential is challenging due to the complexity of programming. This article presents a compiler based approach to automatically generate optimized OpenCL code from data-parallel OpenMP programs for GPUs. A key feature of our scheme is that […]

Workload distribution and balancing in FPGAs and CPUs with OpenCL and TBB

In this paper we evaluate the performance and energy effectiveness of FPGA and CPU devices for a kind of parallel computing applications in which the workload can be distributed in a way that enables simultaneous computing in addition to simple off loading. The FPGA device is programmed via OpenCL using the recent availability of commercial […]

A Performance Analysis Framework for Optimizing OpenCL Applications on FPGAs

Recently, FPGA vendors such as Altera and Xilinx have released OpenCL SDK for programming FPGAs. However, the architecture of FPGA is significantly different from that of CPU/GPU, for which OpenCL is originally designed. Tuning the OpenCL code for good performance on FPGAs is still an open problem, since the existing OpenCL tools and models designed […]

A Case for Work-stealing on FPGAs with OpenCL Atomics

We provide a case study of work-stealing, a popular method for run-time load balancing, on FPGAs. Following the Cederman-Tsigas implementation for GPUs, we synchronize workitems not with locks, mutexes or critical sections, but instead with the atomic operations provided by Altera’s OpenCL SDK. We evaluate work-stealing for FPGAs by synthesizing a K-means clustering algorithm on […]

Study of basic vector operations on Intel Xeon Phi and NVIDIA Tesla using OpenCL

The present work is an analysis of the performance of the basic vector operations AXPY, DOT and SpMV using OpenCL. The code was tested on the NVIDIA Tesla S2050 GPU and Intel Xeon Phi 3120A coprocessor. Due to the nature of the AXPY function, only two versions were implemented, the routine to be executed by […]

SqueezCL: Squeezing OpenCL Kernels for Approximate Computing on Contemporary GPUs

Approximate computing provides an opportunity for exploiting application characteristics to improve performance of computing systems. However, such opportunity must be balanced against generality of methods and quality guarantees that the system designer can provide to the application developer. Improved parallel processing in graphics processing units (GPUs) provides one such means for data-level parallel applications. We […]
