Heterogeneous systems with different types of compute devices are common nowadays in the field of High Performance Computing (HPC). This heterogeneity is not limited to compute devices, but also includes cluster nodes with different hardware configurations leading to asymmetric cluster architectures. In such a hierarchical system OpenCL is not sufficient any more. Support is required to distribute the work efficiently onto the non-identical cluster nodes. Different behavior of the individual… CONTINUE READING
