An Experimental Investigation of Scalable Locality for Cluster Computing By Ian Burnette et al.
Paperback: $5.78

Loop nest transformation has been used successfully to tune dense numerical codes for high performance on single- and multi-core shared-memory systems, but has not been widely applied to cluster... More > computing. We have explored the use of these tools to produce the extremely high degree of memory locality needed to achieve high performance on a cluster with Intel’s Cluster OpenMP software. Our experiments show high performance across our dedicated homogeneous 56-core/14-node research cluster with gigabit Ethernet. With proper tuning, performance drops by less than a factor of two, and sometimes only a few percent, when the network speed is reduced to 100Mb/sec. These results indicate that properly chosen compile-time optimizations can be used for cluster computing, and illustrate the importance of scalable locality, which may be of interest to programmers developing cluster codes manually.< Less

This book... More > continues the adventures and misadventures around Primo's Bar in the town of Kapa'a on the island of Kaua'i. Once you've read "Chicken Skin" you'll want a copy of the first book in the series "The Kaua'i Obake Bar". The main character, Bryan Maegher, a young hapa writer (half-Hawaiian and half-Irish) recounts the various goings-on at Primo's. The regulars there are an interesting group with characters such as Waikane (the last full-blooded menehune on the island) and Goro (a Japanese obake -ghost- with a fondness for whisky). Add to this group the occasional appearance of others such as Madame Pele or secret Government agents on the hunt for a missing A-bomb and you have a lively mix. Chicken Skin is the Hawaiian equivalent of goosebumps, and there's chicken skin aplenty in this book. And plenty of laughs.< Less
