Abstract [en]

Massively parallel processors introduce new demands on software systems with respect to performance, scalability, robustness and portability. The increased complexity of the memory systems and the increased range of problem sizes for which a given piece of software is used, poses serious challenges to software developers. The Connection Machine Scientific Software Library, CMSSL, uses several novel techniques to meet these challenges. The CMSSL contains routines for managing the data distribution and provides data distribution independent functionality. High performance is achieved through careful scheduling of arithmetic operations and data motion, and through the automatic selection of algorithms at run--time. We discuss some of the techniques used, and provide evidence that CMSSL has reached the goals of performance and scalability for an important set of applications. 1 Introduction The main reason for large scale parallelism is performance. In order for massively parallel archit...
