Originální abstrakt

The paper reports on simulation-based performance prediction of parallel applications running on SMP clusters. First the typical message-passing programs are investigated, which demonstrate different computation/ communication patterns: process farm, pipeline and data parallel computing on a linear processor chain. The usefulness of various SMP cluster configurations is discussed with regard to obtained results. Then the message-passing model of shared memory and SMP clusters is used to simulate execution of hybrid message-passing/shared objects programs. A large system of linear equations is used as an example. A single SMP, a SMP cluster and a workstation cluster are compared in performance with a limited L1-cache size.
