Fractal: A Software Toolchain for Mapping Applications to Diverse, Heterogeneous ArchitecturesReport
We present Fractal, and API for programming parallel workloads on multithreaded and multicore architectures. Fractal schedules threads on processors with cache configuration in mind in order to minimize cache misses. Fractal achieves speedups of nearly 2x on Sun NIAGRA, while processors with less hyperthreading see less impressive performance improvements.
