—The increasing numbers of cores, shared caches and memory nodes within machines introduces a complex hardware topology. High-performance computing applications now have to carefully adapt their placement and behavior according to the underlying hierarchy of hardware resources and their software affinities. We introduce the Hardware Locality (hwloc)(More)
The move towards Service Grids, where services are composed to meet the requirements of a user community within constraints specified by the resource provider, present many challenges to service provision and description. To support our research activities in the autonomous composition of services to form a Semantic Service Grid we describe the adoption(More)
This paper presents the design of an implementation-independent Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which is the main basis of the ICENI Grid middleware. Three implementations of this architecture have been provided on top of Jini, JXTA and the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI). The main goal of this paper is to discuss these different(More)
Effective exploitation of computational grids can only be achieved when applications are fully integrated with the grid middleware and the underlying computational resources. Fundamental to this exploitation is information. Information about the structure and behaviour of the application, the capability of the computational and networking resources, and the(More)
HAL is a multidisciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and research institutions in France or abroad, or from public or private research centers. L'archive ouverte pluridisciplinaire HAL, est destinée au dépôt età la diffusion(More)
As the number of cores per machine increases, memory architectures are being redesigned to avoid bus contention and sustain higher throughput needs. The emergence of Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) constraints has caused affinities between threads and buffers to become an important decision criteria for schedulers. Memory migration enables the dynamically(More)
Exploiting the full computational power of current hierarchical multi-processor machines requires a very careful distribution of threads and data among the underlying non-uniform architecture so as to avoid memory access penalties. Directive-based programming languages such as OpenMP provide programmers with an easy way to structure the parallelism of their(More)
