    Chronaki, Kallia; Casas, Marc; Moreto, Miquel; Bosch, Jaume; Badia, Rosa M. (Springer, 2018-05-29)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    As chip multi-processors (CMPs) are becoming more and more complex, software solutions such as parallel programming models are attracting a lot of attention. Task-based parallel programming models offer an appealing approach ...
  • vMCA: Memory Capacity Aggregation and Management in Cloud Environments 

    Garrido, Luis A.; Carpenter, Paul (IEEE, 2018-05-31)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    In cloud environments, the VMs within the computing nodes generate varying memory demand profiles. When memory utilization reaches its limits due to this, costly (virtual) disk accesses and/or VM migrations can occur. Since ...
  • Understanding memory access patterns using the BSC performance tools 

    Servat, Harald; Labarta, Jesús; Hoppe, Hans-Christian; Giménez, Judit; Peña, Antonio J. (Elsevier, 2018-10)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The growing gap between processor and memory speeds has lead to complex memory hierarchies as processors evolve to mitigate such divergence by exploiting the locality of reference. In this direction, the BSC performance ...
  • Modelling multicore contention on the AURIXTM TC27x 

    Díaz, Enrique; Mezzetti, Enrico; Kosmidis, Leonidas; Abella, Jaume; Cazorla, Francisco J. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018-06-24)
    Comunicació de congrés
    Accés obert
    Multicores are becoming ubiquitous in automotive. Yet, the expected benefits on integration are challenged by multicore contention concerns on timing V&V. Worst-case execution time (WCET) estimates are required as early ...
  • Resilient gossip-inspired all-reduce algorithms for high-performance computing - Potential, limitations, and open questions 

    Casas, Marc; Gansterer, Wilfried N.; Wimmer, Elias (SAGE Publications, 2018-04-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We investigate the usefulness of gossip-based reduction algorithms in a high-performance computing (HPC) context. We compare them to state-of-the-art deterministic parallel reduction algorithms in terms of fault tolerance ...
