SUMMARY With the evolution of high-performance computing towards heterogeneous, massively parallel systems, parallel applications have developed new checkpoint and restart necessities. Whether due to a failure in the execution or to a migration of the application processes to different machines, checkpointing tools must be able to operate in heterogeneous(More)
—Java is a valuable and emerging alternative for the development of parallel applications, thanks to the availability of several Java message-passing libraries and its full multithreading support. The combination of both shared and distributed memory programming is an interesting option for parallel programming multi-core systems. However, the concerns(More)
The rising interest in Java for High Performance Computing (HPC) is based on the appealing features of this language for programming multi-core cluster architectures, particularly the built-in networking and multithreading support, and the continuous increase in Java Virtual Machine (JVM) performance. However, its adoption in this area is being delayed by(More)
This paper presents F-MPJ (Fast MPJ), a scalable and efficient Message-Passing in Java (MPJ) communication middleware for parallel computing. The increasing interest in Java as the programming language of the multi-core era demands scalable performance on hybrid architectures (with both shared and distributed memory spaces). However, current Java(More)
The use of Java for parallel programming on clusters according to the message-passing paradigm is an attractive choice. In this case, the overall application performance will largely depend on the performance of the underlying Java message-passing library. This paper evaluates, models and compares the performance of MPI-like point-to-point and collective(More)
The current trend to multicore architectures underscores the need of parallelism. While new languages and alternatives for supporting more efficiently these systems are proposed, MPI faces this new challenge. Therefore, up-to-date performance evaluations of current options for programming multicore systems are needed. This paper evaluates MPI performance(More)
—The growing complexity in computer system hierarchies due to the increase in the number of cores per processor, levels of cache (some of them shared) and the number of processors per node, as well as the high-speed interconnects, demands the use of new optimization techniques and libraries that take advantage of their features. In this paper Servet, a(More)
The recognition of program constructs that are frequently used by software developers is a powerful mechanism for optimizing and parallelizing compilers to improve the performance of the object code. The development of techniques for automatic recognition of computational kernels such as inductions, reductions and array recurrences has been an intensive(More)
SUMMARY The memory hierarchy plays an essential role in the performance of current computers, thus good analysis tools that help predict and understand its behavior are required. Analytical modeling is the ideal base for such tools if its traditional limitations in accuracy and scope of application are overcome. While there has been extensive research on(More)
