PACHA: Low Cost Bare Metal Development for Shared Memory Manycore Accelerators

Alexandre Aminot, Alexandre Guerre, Julien Peeters, Yves Lhuillier
2013 Procedia Computer Science  
Today, efficiently implementing an application on shared memory manycore accelerators is a hard task. Linux eases the development, but is not adapted to exploit the maximum of the platform yet. Bare metal programming environments provided with accelerators give a low-overhead access to the platform. However, they increase the complexity of development, mainly due to 4 gaps: each accelerator has its own specific environment; bare metal environments are only supported on the hardware platform or

In order to fill the gaps and thus, to lower the barrier to develop on bare metal on shared memory manycore accelerators, we present PACHA. It features two aspects: a low overhead, Platform Agnostic, Close-to-HArdware (PACHA) programming interface, which allows to handle only one version of the application code for all supported accelerators, and an easy-to-use multi-platform development environment, which abstracts the complexity of each accelerator's development environment. With a x86 support and a Linux compatibility, PACHA offers a functional simulator and all the Linux set of debugging tools. Further, based on the programming interface, three parallel execution models have been ported in order to facilitate the development and comparison of applications. PACHA is currently fully supported for x86 platforms, TILEPro64 and STHORM. A case study on a TILEPro64 is presented: the performance gain using PACHA rather than Linux with OpenMP or Pthread is about 1,8x to 4x, without increasing the development cost.

The Couette flow of dense and fluid-saturated granular media

Pierre-Yves Lagrée, Daniel Lhuillier
2006 European journal of mechanics. B, Fluids  
A continuum-mechanical description is proposed for dense granular media submitted to steady shears. By dense granular media we mean high solid fractions in the range between the random loose and the random close packings. The description is based on a modeling of the stresses resulting from free-volume entropic effects, contacts and impacts between particles, and viscosity of the interstitial fluid. The non-homogeneity of the material is taken into account via several transport coefficients

When applied to the tangential annular flow in a Couette cell, the model predicts velocity and solid fraction profiles which agree qualitatively with those found experimentally but which also present some conflicting features, possibly due to the difficulties to achieve a true steady profile for the solid fraction. More precisely, we obtain the following predictions: (a) a minimum shear is required for motion, (b) above this minimum the motion is localized and the solid fraction decreases when approaching the inner moving cylinder, (c) the width of the shear band increases with the applied shear stress up to a maximum value above which our description fails because the solid fraction at the inner moving cylinder becomes smaller than the random loose packing, (d) the maximum width of the shear band is proportional to the radius of the inner cylinder, with a proportionality coefficient which increases with the fluid viscosity and decreases with the confining pressure and the grain size, (e) for dry granular media the maximum width of the shear band is approximately half the radius of the inner cylinder so that localization is observed in almost all Couette cells, (f) when a very viscous fluid surrounds the grains the width of the shear band often exceeds the gap of the Couette cell, giving the (wrong) impression that shear localization has disappeared.

CAPSULE: Hardware-Assisted Parallel Execution of Component-Based Programs

Pierre Palatin, Yves Lhuillier, Olivier Temam
2006 Microarchitecture (MICRO), Proceedings of the Annual International Symposium on  
Since processor performance scalability will now mostly be achieved through thread-level parallelism, there is a strong incentive to parallelize a broad range of applications, including those with complex control flow and data structures. And writing parallel programs is a notoriously difficult task. Beyond processor performance, the architect can help by facilitating the task of the programmer, especially by simplifying the model exposed to the programmer. In this article, among the many

We propose to relieve the user and compiler of both tasks by delegating the parallelization decision to the architecture at run-time, through a combination of hardware and software support and a tight dialogue between both. For the software support, we leverage an increasingly popular approach in software engineering, called component-based programming; the component contract assumes tight encapsulation of code and data for easy manipulation. Previous research works have shown that it is possible to augment components with the ability to split/spawn, providing a simple and fitting approach for programming parallel applications with complex control and data structures. However, such environments still require the programmer to determine the appropriate granularity of parallelism, and spawning incurs significant overheads due to software run-time system management. For that purpose, we provide an environment with the ability to spawn conditionally depending on available hardware resources, and we delegate spawning decisions and actions to the architecture. This conditional spawning is implemented through frequent hardware resource probing by the program. This, in turn, enables rapid adaptation to varying workload conditions, data sets and hardware resources. Furthermore, thanks to appropriate combined hardware and compiler support, the probing has no significant overhead on program performance. We demonstrate this approach on an 8-context SMT, several non-trivial algorithms and re-engineered SPEC CINT2000 benchmarks, written using component syntax processed by our toolchain. We achieve speedups ranging from 1.1 to 3.0 on our test suite.

Flow and jamming of a two-dimensional granular bed: Toward a nonlocal rheology?

Lydie Staron, Pierre-Yves Lagrée, Christophe Josserand, Daniel Lhuillier
2010 Physics of Fluids  
In order to test the rheology of granular flows, we performed series of numerical simulations of nearly monodisperse stationary chute flows from rapid to slow and very slow flow regime, namely, close to the jamming transition. We check how existing rheological models ͑i.e., Bagnold's model and the I-model͒ capture the behavior of the numerical flows, and perform an acute characterization of the structure of the flow in terms of grains velocity fluctuations close to the jamming transition. The

Turning to the analysis of grains velocity fluctuations, we compute the associated correlation length and show its dependence on the inertial number: / d ϰ I −0.32 . The amplitude of the grains velocity fluctuations, namely, the granular temperature, exhibits a power-law dependence on the shear rate and allows for an efficient prediction of the shape of the velocity profiles. The main result consists of a scaling merging all data points for all flow regimes onto the same master curve, and relating granular temperature, shear rate, and the variation of stress between the considered depth and the bottom wall. This scaling can be written as a relation between local stress, local shear rate, and local temperature, provided the introduction of a characteristic length scale = d ͱ ͑H − z͒ / z where both the distance to the surface and the distance to the bottom wall are involved. This scaling strongly suggests a nonlocal behavior, valid in the flow regime and extending close to the jamming transition, and hints at granular temperature as the variable at the origin of the nonlocality.

Liquid Crystal (LC) topological defects have been shown to trap nanoparticles (NPs) in the defect cores. The LC topological defects may thus be used as a matrix for new kinds of NP organizations templated by the defect geometry. We here study composites of LC smectic dislocations and gold NPs. Straight NP chains parallel to the dislocations are obtained leading to highly anisotropic optical absorption of the NPs controlled by light polarization. Combining Grazing Incidence Small Angle X-ray

We use NPs of diameter D = 6 nm embedded in an array of different kinds of dislocations. For dislocation core larger than the NP size, stable long chains are obtained but made of poorly interacting NPs. For dislocation core smaller than the NP size, the disorder is induced outside the dislocation cores and the NP chains are not equilibrium structures. However we show that at least half of these small dislocations can be filled, leading to chains with strongly enhanced electromagnetic coupling between the NPs. These chains are more probably stabilized by the elastic distortions around the defect cores, the distortion being enhanced by the presence of the grain boundary where the dislocations are embedded.

2001 Clinical Cardiology  
Four cases of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients who developed coronary heart disease (CHD) while under treatment with a protease inhibitor (PI) are described, and the epidemiologic and clinical features of 18 cases reported in the literature are analyzed. Cardiac manifestations mostly included myocardial infarctions. Smoking and hyperlipidemia were the most common risk factorsfor CHD, reported in 72 and 8 1 % of the patients, respectively. Hypercholesterolemia was observed in

Ninety percent of the patients with pretreatment normal lipid values experienced a rise in the plasma lipid levels during PI therapy. Although a definite relationship between the development of CHD and HIV PIS can not be made, this analysis suggests that PI-induced hyperlipidemia may play a role in accelerating coronary atherosclerosis in patients with concomitant risk factors. Evaluation and control of risk factors for CHD should be performed in each patient for whom treatment with a PI is indicated.
