Abstract:The execution framework has been implemented in the Illinois Concert System, targeting the ICC++ language. Evaluation of mechanisms on two target platforms, the Cray T3D and the SGI Origin 2000, for four large irregular applications demonstrates their individual effectiveness and collective sufficiency: Each application achieves performance comparable to the best achievable using low-level means. Additionally, these improvements persist across a range of hardware communication architecture interfaces. Our results imply that high-level expressions of parallel programs need not sacrifice on performance.
