  30. OMP Performance Tools Interface • Goal 1: Expose OpenMP events and execution states to a performance measurement system • What are the OpenMP events / states of interest? • What is the nature (mechanism) of the interface? • Goal 2: Make the performance measurement interface portable • “Standardize” on interface mechanism / semantics • Goal 3: Support source-level and compiler-level implementation of interface • “Towards a Performance Tools Interface for OpenMP: An Approach Based on Directive Rewriting,” EWOMP 2001.

  31. Performance State and Event Model • Based on performance model for (nested) fork-join parallelism, multi-threaded work-sharing, and thread-based synchronization • Define with respect to multi-level state view • Level 1: serial and parallel states (with nesting) • Level 2: work-sharing states (per team thread) • Level 3: synchronization states (per team thread) • Level 4: runtime system (thread) states • Events reflect state transitions • State enter / exit (begin / end) • State graph with event edges

  32. Fork-Join Execution States and Events Events masterslave Parallel region operation master starts serial execution X parallel region begins X S STARTUP slaves started X team begins parallel execution X X P team threads hit barrier X X slaves end; master exits barrier X X SHUTDOWN master resumes serial execution X S

  33. Performance Measurement Model • Serial performance • Detect serial transition points • Standard events and statistics within serial regions • Time spent in serial execution • Locations of serial execution in program • Parallel performance • Detect parallel transitions points • Time spent in parallel execution • Region perspective and work-sharing perspective • Performance profiles kept per region • More complex parallel states of execution

  34. Event Generation (Callback) Interface • Directive-specific callback functions • omperf_{NAME}_{TYPE}(D) • NAME is replaced by OMP directive name • TYPE is either fork/join, enter/exit, begin/end • D is a context (region) descriptor • Advantages • Standardizes function names independent of base programming language • Specification tied directly to programming model • Define addition OpenMP directives • Initialization, termination, measurement control

  35. Instrumentation Alternatives • Source-level instrumentation • Manual instrumentation (will be done anyway) • Directive (source-to-source) transformation • Compiler instrumentation • More closely tied to directive processing • Could allow more efficient implementation • Runtime system instrumentation • RTL-level events • Possibly gain more detailed information • Dynamic instrumentation • May be very hard to do without well-defined interface

  36. Proposal Based on Directive Transformation • Consider source-level approach • For each OMP directive, generate an “instrumented” version which calls the performance event API. • What is the event model for each directive? • Issues • OMP RTL execution behavior is not fully exposed • May not be able to generate equivalent form • Possible conflicts with directive optimization • May be less efficient • Hard to access RTL events and information • Proposed transformations (B. Mohr, Research Centre Juelich)
