Parallelized Direct Execution Simulation of Message-Passing Parallel Programs

  title={Parallelized Direct Execution Simulation of Message-Passing Parallel Programs},
  author={Phillip M. Dickens and Philip Heidelberger and David M. Nicol},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Parallel Distrib. Syst.},
As massively parallel computers proliferate, there is growing interest in finding ways by which performance of massively parallel codes can be efficiently predicted. This problem arises in diverse contexts such as parallelizing compilers, parallel performance monitoring, and parallel algorithm development. In this paper we describe one solution where one directly executes the application code, but uses a discrete-event simulator to model details of the presumed parallel machine, such as… CONTINUE READING
