Parallel performance prediction for multigrid\ud codes on distributed memory architectures

By G Romanazzi and P.K. Jimack

Abstract

We propose a model for describing the parallel performance\ud of multigrid software on distributed memory architectures. The goal of the model is to allow reliable predictions to be made as to the execution time of a given code on a large number of processors, of a given parallel system, by only benchmarking the code on small numbers of processors. This has potential applications for the scheduling of jobs in a Grid computing environment where reliable predictions as to execution times on different systems will be valuable. The model is tested for two different multigrid codes running on two different parallel architectures and the\ud results obtained are discussed
