Intelreg Threading Building Blocks (Intelreg TBB) is a C++ library for parallel programming. Its templates for generic parallel loops are built upon nested parallelism and a work-stealing scheduler. This paper discusses optimizations where the high-level algorithm inspects or biases stealing. Two optimizations are discussed in detail. The first dynamically optimizes grain size based on observed stealing. The second improves prior work that exploits cache locality by biased stealing. This paper… CONTINUE READING
