Outline
• Why Data Flow Pattern Analysis?
• CFD Applications
• The NAS Parallel Benchmarks
• The NAS Grid Benchmarks
• Trace File Analysis
• Conclusions
Why Data Flow Pattern Analysis?
• Scientific applications
• model few natural processes
• new effects are added infrequently
• influence on the existing data flows are insignificant
• Knowledge of data flow in program helps with
• program understanding
• building application performance model
Design of Scientific Applications
• Time represented as an outer loop
• Iterations over time step
• Space is represented by structured/unstructured grids
• Important for understanding data locality
• Data access patterns
• Spatial parallelism
• Physics is represented by an operator at each grid point
• Data flow
• Operator level of parallelism/dependence
CFD Data Flow Patterns
• Solve the Navier-Stokes equation

K(ui+1)=Lui

• u is five-dimensional vector
• K is non-linear operator
• Solver
• RHS computation

z-solve

• Multilevel parallelism

Explicit Operators
• Stencil operators (explicit methods)
• At each point of a 3-dimensional mesh apply:
