Evaluation of streaming aggregation on parallel hardware architectures
We present a case study parallelizing streaming aggregation on three different parallel hardware architectures. Aggregation is a performance-critical operation for data summarization in stream computing, and is commonly found in sense-and-respond applications. Currently available commodity parallel hardware provides promise as accelerators for streaming aggregation. However, how streaming aggregation can map to the different parallel architectures is still an open question. Streaming aggregation is obviously data parallel, but in practice its performance relies more on efficient data movement than computation, as we will demonstrate. Furthermore, we used workloads such as stock market data, which introduces unique data distribution problems. The three parallel architectures we use in our study are an Intel Core 2 Quad processor, an Nvidia GTX 285 GPU and the IBM PowerXCell 8i, an enhanced version of the Cell Broadband Engine architecture. Our implementations use OpenMP, CUDA and Cell...
