Feedback guided dynamic loop scheduling

Algorithms for parallelising loops will be discussed together with an extension to the feedback-guided dynamic loop scheduling algorithm incorporating memory.

Since loops are the dominant source of parallelism for many applications, a variety of algorithms that aim to schedule loop iterations to processors of a shared-memory machine in an almost optimal way (so-called loop scheduling algorithms) have been designed. In this presentation we review existing loop scheduling algorithms and also describe the feedback-guided dynamic loop scheduling (FGDLS) algorithm. The FGDLS algorithm uses a feedback mechanism to schedule a parallel loop within a sequential outer loop. We will consider the
convergence properties of the algorithm and will describe a extension to the algorithm that incorporates some memory.
