Context. Writing software for the current generation of parallel systems requires significant programmer effort, and the community is seeking alternatives that reduce effort while still achieving good performance. Objective. Measure the effect of parallel programming models (message-passing vs. PRAM-like) on programmer effort. Design, Setting, and Subjects. One group of subjects implemented sparse-matrix dense-vector multiplication using message-passing (MPI), and a second group solved the same… CONTINUE READING
