Automatic Scalability Analysis of Parallel Programs Based on Modeling Techniques
When implementingparallel programs forparallel computer systems the performancescalability of these programs should be tested and analyzed on different computer configurations and problem sizes. Since a complete scalability analysis is too time consuming and is limited to only existing systems, extensions of modeling approaches can be considered for analyzing the behavior of parallel programs under different problem and system scenarios. In this paper, a method for automatic scalability analysis using modeling is presented. Initially, we identify the important problems that arise when attempting to apply modeling techniques to scalability analysis. Based on this study, we define the Parallelization Description Language (PDL) that is used to describe parallel execution attributes of a generic program workload. Based on a parallelization description, stochastic models like graph models or Petri net models can be automatically generated from a generic model to analyze performance for sca...
