Compiler Support for Array Distribution on NUMA Shared Memory Multiprocessors
Management of program data to improve data locality and reduce false sharing is critical for scaling performanceon NUMA shared memorymultiprocessors. We use HPF-like data decomposition directives to partition and place arrays in data-parallel applications on Hector, a shared-memory NUMA multiprocessor. We describe a compiler system for automating the partitioningand placement of arrays. The compiler exploits Hector's shared memory architecture to e cientlyimplementdistributedarrays. Experimentalresults froma prototypeimplementation demonstrate the e ectiveness of these techniques. They also demonstrate the magnitude of the performanceimprovementattainablewhen ourcompiler-baseddatamanagementschemesare used instead of operatingsystem data managementpolicies performanceimproves by up to a factor of 5.
