This paper discusses a novel approach to implementing OpenMP on clusters. Traditional approaches to do so rely on Software Distributed Shared Memory systems to handle shared data. We discuss these and then introduce an alternative approach that translates OpenMP to Global Arrays (GA), explaining the basic strategy. GA requires a data distribution. We do not expect the user to supply this; rather, we show how we perform data distribution and work distribution according to the user-supplied… CONTINUE READING
