Originální abstrakt

It is shown that practical PRAM programming using existing TRANSIM tool can serve not only to debugging parallel programs, but also to tuning their performance. Moreover, performance of PRAM algorithms for a finite problem size and processor count can be used for comparison with performance obtained at execution of real parallel programs. The well known bitonic sorting algoritm is chosen as an example and two of its recent modifications are investigated. Results demonstrate easiness of prototyping, debugging, and tuning PRAM parallel programs as a first step before turning to real parallel machines.
