Outline 1.Why Autotuning? 2.What is Autotuning? 3.Research Problems

3
Why autotuning? In the era of parallelism… Applications and software must maintain high efficiency as machines evolve. – Otherwise, no reason for new machines. Problem: High-efficiency requires laborious tuning. – Cost increase. – Low performance if not enough resources Would like to automate tuning.

4
Compilers One way is compilers, but compilers have limitations. – Lack semantic information → fewer choices – Must target all applications – Must be reasonably fast

Compiler vs. Manual Tuning Discrete Fourier Transform

Compiler vs. Manual Tuning Matrix Matrix Multiplication 20x MFLOPS Matrix Size Intel MKL icc -O3 -xT icc -O3

7
Compiler vs. Manual Tuning Matrix Matrix Multiplication loop 1 c[i*N+j] += a[i*N+k]*b[k*N+j] loop 2 c[i][j] += a[i][k]*b[k][j] loop 3 C += a[i][k]*b[k][j]

8
Compilers … Can and should improve But we will need other strategies (at least in the short term)

Outline 1.Why Autotuning? 2.What is Autotuning? 3.Research Problems

10
What is Autotuning An emerging strategy: empirical search – Goal: Automatically generate highly efficient code for each target machine (and input set). – Programmers develop metaprograms (a program that generates programs) that search the space of possible algorithms/implementations

11
Generator of the versions High-level code Source-to-source optimizer Native compiler Metaprogram:Decription of the space of versions Object code Execution performance Selected code High-level code Input data (training) Autotuning with empirical search

12
Autotuning More laborious than conventional programming, but – Longer lifetime → cost reduction – Can accumulate experience → better results – Can afford to search more extensively → better results

49
Issue 3:Description of the Space ATLAS generator is written in C We need more effective notations to implement a generator (describe the search space) Two possibilities: – Domain Specific Languages – General Purpose Languages

50
Issue 3:Description of the Space Illustrated with: 1.SPIRAL (Domain Specific Language) [Proc. Of IEEE05] Püschel, Moura, Johnson, Padua, Veloso, Singer, Xiong, Franchetti, Gacic, Voronenko, Chen, Johnson, and Rizzolo. Spiral: Code Generation for DSP Transforms. Proc. Of IEEE, Metalanguage (General Purpose Language) [LCPC05] Donadio, Brodman, Roeder, Yotov, Barthou, Cohen, Garzarán, Padua and Pingali. A Language for the Compact Representation of Multiples Program Versions. In LCPC 2005.

51
SPIRAL SPIRAL, generator of signal processing algorithms (DFT, DCT, WHT, filters, …) SPIRAL uses empirical search to generate routines that adapt to the target machine: – Sequential, parallel, SIMD, …

52
SPIRAL Contribution Declarative domain-specific language and rewriting rules to specify the search space. The result – Generation of routines that run faster than IPP (manually tuned) – Intel has started to use SPIRAL to generate parts of the IPP library

53
SPIRAL Search based on breakdown and re-writing rules: This is SPL, SPIRAL metalanguage

SPIRAL Program Generation

56
SPIRAL Why is search important? – Different formulas (algorithms) have different execution times They differ in the memory access pattern Have different ILP

57
SPIRAL Performance Results

58
Metaprogramming General-purpose programming of autotuned libraries and applications. A metaprogram contains a compact description of the space of program versions and how to proceed with the search.

59
Metaprogram example %try s in {2,4,8} for j=1 to 128 by %s %for k=j to j+s-1 a(%k) = … for j=1 to 128 by 4 a(j) = … a(j+1) = … a(j+2) = … a(j+3) = … for j=1 to 128 by 2 a(j) = … a(j+1) = … for j=1 to 128 by 8 a(j) = … a(j+1) = … a(j+2) = … a(j+3) = … a(j+4) = … a(j+5) = … a(j+6) = … a(j+7) = … Search strategy Program shape for each value

61
Issue 4: What to tune 1.Kernels (MMM, FFT, sorting, …) 2.Codelets 3.Primitives

62
Codelets A class of (short) code sequences that appear often in an application domain The set of codelets should cover much of the execution domain Applications are decomposed into codelets Codelets are autotuned

63
Codelets Need a database of codelets – Each codelet in the database contains a set of compiler optimizations Application is decomposed in codelets that are matched against the codelets in the database – Application codelets are optimized using the set of optimizations of the matched codelet in the database Collaboration with David Kuck and David Wong, INTEL

64
Primitive Operations Same as codelets, but not identified automatically by the compiler The user is expected to write the application using primitives The primitives operations are tuned for each target platform

65
Example of Primitive Operations HTA : Hierarchically Tiled Arrays [PPoPP06] Bikshandi, Guo, Hoeflinger, Almasi, Fraguela, Garzarán, Padua, and von Praun. Programming for Parallelism and Locality with Hierarchically Tiled. In PPoPP, [PPoPP08] Guo, Bikshandi, Fraguela, Garzarán, and Padua. Programming with Tiles.In PPoPP 2008.

66
Hierarchically Tiled Arrays (HTAs) HTA is a data type where tiles are explicit HTAs are manipulated with data parallel primitives – HTA programs look sequential programs where parallelism is encapsulated into the data parallel primitives Result – Programs that run as fast as MPI (test with NAS benchmarks) – Fewer lines of code – Portable codes

67
FFT using HTA parallel primitives Can be autotuned

68
Data Parallel Primitives Challenge: Can we extend data parallel primitive operations to other complex data types, such as sets, trees, graphs?

70
Issue 5: What to tune for 1.Execution Time (All the previous systems) 2.Power (Preliminary data in next slides) 3.Space 4.Reliability

71
71 Power in SPIRAL Processors allow software control of operating frequency and voltage e.g. Intel Pentium M 770 has 6 settings – 2.13 GHz at volt(max performance) – 800MHz at volt (min power/energy)

72
72 Experimental Setup Intel Pentium M model 770 –,,,,, Measurements – HW: Agilent 34134A current probe and Agilent 34401A DMM – SW: SPIRAL controlled automatic runtime and energy measurement routine Optimization space – voltage-frequency scaling

73
73 Dynamic voltage-frequency scaling Use of voltage scaling instructions – CPU bound region --> run at high frequency – Memory bound region --> run at low frequency Minimum impact on execution time and significant reduction in energy consumption

74
74 Dynamic voltage-frequency scaling: memory profile Time Cache miss ratio Each point shows the cache miss ratio every 100 seconds WHT-2 19 (out-of-cache) Zoom

75
75 Dynamic voltage-frequency scaling: memory profile Cache miss ratio Each point shows the cache miss ratio every 100 seconds WHT-2 19 (out-of-cache) Time low frequency high frequency

76
76 Dynamic voltage-frequency scaling: results Energy (Joules) WHT-2 19 Execution Time (Seconds ) Energy versus execution time

77
77 Same exec. time 10% less energy Dynamic voltage-frequency scaling: results Energy (Joules) Execution Time (Seconds ) Energy versus execution time Dynamic Voltage Scaling Same energy less execution time WHT-2 19

78
78 Compiler Optimizations (Future work) Iterations Cache miss ratio Apply dependence analysis and group together iterations with similar cache miss ratio increases the benefit of dynamic voltage scaling Iterations
