Automatically Pipelining Loop Iterations on Distributed-Memory Machines

Offner, Carl D.


Keyword(s): dependence analysis; compiler optimizations; High Performance Fortran; HPF; parallelism; distributed memory

Abstract: This paper really has two parts: 1. We start with an expository discussion of LU decomposition, including a motivation as well as a clean derivation of the standard algorithm. 2. Then we show how a clever HPF compiler could infer--simply from the HPF data mapping directives--that the outer loop can be pipelined. This inference is made possible by an extension of the ordinary notion of dependence to include what are here called spatial dependences.
