Extending OpenMP to Support Slipstream Execution Mode

  title={Extending OpenMP to Support Slipstream Execution Mode},
  author={Khaled Z. Ibrahim and Gregory T. Byrd},
OpenMP has emerged as a widely accepted standard for writing shared memory programs. Hardware-specific extensions such as data placement are usually needed to improve the scalability of applications based on this standard. This paper investigates the implementation of an OpenMP compiler that supports slipstream execution mode, a new optimization mechanism for CMP-based distributed shared memory multiprocessors. Slipstream mode uses additional processors to reduce communication overhead, rather… CONTINUE READING
