The landscape of GPGPU performance modeling tools

Souley Madougou, Ana Varbanescu, Cees de Laat, Rob van Nieuwpoort
2016 Parallel Computing  
We further use typical kernel examples with various computation and memory access patterns to assess the efficacy and usability of a set of promising approaches.  ...  While both programmers and architects have clear opinions about the causes of this performance gap, finding and quantifying the real problems remains a topic for performance modeling tools.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is in part funded by the research program of the Netherlands eScience Center ( ).  ...

Finding, Measuring, and Reducing Inefficiencies in Contemporary Computer Systems

Melanie Rae Kambadur
Next is a project that uses the GT-Pin tool to define a method for accelerating the simulation of GPGPUs, ultimately allowing for the development of future hardware with fewer inefficiencies.  ...  This complexity supports a wide range of new computing uses and users, but is not without cost: it has become difficult to maintain the efficiency of contemporary general purpose computing systems.  ...  There are two related profiling tools from the Georgia Institute of Technology: Ocelot [51, 126] and Lynx [60] .  ...

Resource efficient processing and communication in sensor/actuator environments

Constantin Timm, Technische Universität Dortmund, Technische Universität Dortmund
Therefore, this thesis presents methods which allow an efficient use of energy and processing resources in sensor/actuator networks.  ...  The application code for these graphics processing units is optimized for a particular platform variant with the objectives of minimal energy consumption and/or of minimal runtime.  ...  Sensor/actuator networks (a) The consideration of QoS (Quality of Service) in sensor/actuactor network can enable a more efficient use of resource such as communication link bandwidth.  ...

A decision support tool to improve binational water quality planning and management in the lower Rio Grande/Río Bravo [article]

Roger Menelik Miranda, 0000-0003-1376-7772, Austin, The University Of Texas At, David J Eaton
This dissertation describes the development of a decision support tool designed to facilitate and enhance collaborative binational decision making associated with integrated transboundary water quality  ...  the information in a way that is useful to institutional and noninstitutional actors involved in transboundary water quality planning efforts.  ...  This tool is most useful when used in combination with zoom tools, as the full map extent of the LRGWQI is limited to a 31,725 km 2 quadrant.  ...

MRAP : marketing military innovation [article]

Hasik, James M., 1966-
For the first time since our arrival, the American battalion was coming to us [an Iraqi battalion] not to include us as part of a coalition, but in true and desperate need for help.  ...  Animal Company had been on a security run in the middle of the city, just west of Checkpoint 296, when a massive explosion detonated virtually underneath one of their Bradleys.  ...  Those independent supply chains that Mann sought produced a multiplicity of sources and parts, involving 62 second-tier vendors for 15 critical sub-assemblies, including eight for armor and nine for suspension  ...

Andean bears and people in Apolabamba, Bolivia : culture, conflict and conservation

Susanna L Paisley
Seasonal variation was documented in activity patterns and in habitat use according to changes in the availability of bear foods.  ...  Key ecological findings include the first description of the activity patterns of the species - both bears having displayed diurnal activity with two peaks on either side of a midday trough.  ...  Optimal foraging theory provides a framework for interpreting seasonal variation.  ...
