dc.description.abstractHybrid programming is a promising approach to exploit clusters of multicore systems. Our focus is on the combination of MPI and tasking. This hybrid approach combines the low-latency and high throughput of MPI with the flexibility of tasking models and their inherent ability to handle load imbalance. However, combining tasking with standard MPI implementations can be a challenge. The Task-Aware MPI library (TAMPI) eases the development of applications combining tasking with MPI. TAMPI enables developers to overlap computation and communication phases by relying on the tasking data-flow execution model. Using this approach, the original computation that was distributed in many different MPI ranks is grouped together in fewer MPI ranks, and split into several tasks per rank. Nevertheless, programmers must be careful with task granularity. Too fine-grained tasks introduce too much overhead, while too coarse-grained tasks lead to lack of parallelism. An adequate granularity may not always exist, especially in distributed environments where the same amount of work is distributed among many more cores. Worksharing tasks are a special kind of tasks, recently proposed, that internally leverage worksharing techniques. By doing so, a single worksharing task may run in several cores concurrently. Nonetheless, the task management costs remain the same than a regular task. In this work, we study the combination of worksharing tasks and TAMPI on distributed environments using two well known mini-apps: HPCCG and LULESH. Our results show significant improvements using worksharing tasks compared to regular tasks, and to other state-of-the-art alternatives such as OpenMP worksharing.
