Memory Trace Compression and Replay for SPMD Systems using Extended PRSDs?
Concurrency levels in large-scale supercomputers are rising exponentially, and shared-memory nodes with hundreds of cores and non-uniform memory access latencies are expected within the next decade. However, even current petascale systems with tens of cores per node suffer from memory bottlenecks. As core counts increase, memory issues will become critical for the performance of large-scale supercomputers. Trace analysis tools are thus vital for diagnosing the root causes of memory problems. However, existing memory tracing tools are expensive due to prohibitively large trace sizes, or they collect only statistical summaries and omit potentially valuable information. In this paper, we present ScalaMemTrace, a novel technique for collecting memory traces in a scalable manner. ScalaMemTrace builds on prior trace methods with aggressive compression techniques to allow lossless representation of memory traces for dense algebraic kernels, with nearconstant trace size irrespective of the p...
