We present Aftermath, an open source graphical tool designed to assist in the performance debugging process of task-parallel programs by visualizing, filtering and analyzing execution traces interactively. To efficiently exploit increasingly complex and concurrent hardware architectures, both the application and the run-time system that manages task(More)
We present a joint scheduling and memory allocation algorithm for efficient execution of task-parallel programs on non-uniform memory architecture (NUMA) systems. Task and data placement decisions are based on a static description of the memory hierarchy and on runtime information about intertask communication. Existing locality-aware scheduling strategies(More)
This paper studies the interactive visualization and post-mortem analysis of execution traces generated by task-parallel programs. We focus on the detection of performance anomalies inaccessible to state-of-the-art performance analysis techniques, including anomalies deriving from the interaction of multiple levels of software abstractions, anomalies(More)
Dynamic task-parallel programming models are popular on shared-memory systems, promising enhanced scalability, load balancing and locality. Yet these promises are undermined by non-uniform memory access (NUMA). We show that using NUMA-aware task and data placement, it is possible to preserve the uniform abstraction of both computing and memory resources for(More)
Dynamic task parallelism is a popular programming model on shared-memory systems. Compared to data parallel loop-based concurrency, it promises enhanced scalability, load balancing and locality. These promises, however, are undermined by non-uniform memory access (NUMA) systems. We show that it is possible to preserve the uniform hardware abstraction of(More)
To efficiently exploit the resources of new many-core architectures, integrating dozens or even hundreds of cores per chip, parallel programming models have evolved to expose massive amounts of parallelism, often in the form of fine-grained tasks. Task-parallel languages, such as OpenStream, X10, Habanero Java and C or StarSs, simplify the development of(More)
