A platform for developing adaptable multicore applications
Computer systems are resource constrained. Application adaptation is a useful way to optimize system resource usage while satisfying the application performance constraints. Previous application adaptation efforts, however, were adhoc, time-consuming, and highly application-specific with limited portability between computer systems. In this work, our goal is to provide a development platform to systematically explore and rigorously apply portable applicationspecific runtime optimization. We present OCCAM, a software platform for developing multicore adaptive applications. OCCAM’s design-time platform consists of APIs and data structures that allow application developers to specify the performance constraints and application-specific optimization techniques. OCCAM’s run-time system dynamically manages the application behavior and optimizes system resource usage. OCCAM targets emerging Recognition, Mining, and Synthesis Applications (RMS). Using a set of RMS benchmarks, the expe...
