A practical study of UPC using the NAS Parallel Benchmarks


We describe a performance study of the UPC PGAS model applied to three application benchmarks from the NAS Parallel Benchmark suite. The work focuses on the performance implications of programming choices made for data affinity and data access. We compare runs of multiple versions of each benchmark encoded in UPC on both shared-memory and cluster-based… (More)
