Automatic Code Generation of Distributed Parallel Tasks

Abstract : With the advent of clustered systems, more and more parallel computing is required. However a lot of programming skills is needed to write a parallel codes, especially when you want to benefit from the various parallel architectural resources, with heterogeneous units and complex memory organizations. We present in this paper a method that generates automatically, step by step, a task-parallel distributed code from a sequential program. It has been implemented in an existing source-to-source compiler PIPS. Our approach provides two main advantages 1) all the program transformations are simple and applied on source code, thus are visible by the user, 2) a proof of correctness of the parallelization process can be made. This ensures that we end up with a correct distributed-task program for distributed-memory machines. To our knowledge, it is the first tool that automatically generates a distributed code for task parallelization.
