Streamware: programming general-purpose multicore processors using streams
Recently, the number of cores on general-purpose processors has been increasing rapidly. Using conventional programming models, it is challenging to effectively exploit these cores for maximal performance. An interesting alternative candidate for programming multiple cores is the stream programming model, which provides a framework for writing programs in a sequential-style while greatly simplifying the task of automatic parallelization. It has been shown that not only traditional media/image applications but also more general-purpose data-intensive applications can be expressed in the stream programming style. In this paper, we investigate the potential to use the stream programming model to efficiently utilize commodity multicore general-purpose processors (e.g., Intel/AMD). Although several stream languages and stream compilers have recently been developed, they typically target special-purpose stream processors. In contrast, we propose a flexible software system, Streamware, which...
