Sequential applications can take advantage of multi-core systems by way of pipeline parallelism to improve their performance. In such parallelism, core to core communication overhead is the main limit of speedup. This paper presents BatchQueue, a fast and memory-thrifty core to core communication system based on batch processing of whole cache line.(More)
In the context of multicore programming, pipeline parallelism is a solution to easily transform a sequential program into a parallel one without requiring a whole rewriting of the code. The OpenMP stream-computing extension presented by Pop and Cohen proposes an extension of OpenMP to handle pipeline parallelism. However, their communication algorithm(More)
