R. Dementiev and P. Sanders: Asynchronous Parallel Disk Sorting 2 Motivation & Related Work Sorting is important for EM problems Disks are cheaper than computers Prefetch buffers for load disk balancing and overlapping have been studied but no results which guarantee – overlapping during merging of runs – asymptotically optimal I/O volume Here: algorithm & implementation – I/O cost lower bound – guarantees almost perfect overlapping between I/O and computation

R. Dementiev and P. Sanders: Asynchronous Parallel Disk Sorting 3 Motivation & Related Work [ChaudhryCormen0102] impl. of distributed memory, parallel disk Theory: Implementations: Differences: – Optimal prefetching algorithm – Overlapping of I/O and computation – Completely asynchronous implementation – Part of library, compatible with STL. Use as simple as: stxxl::vector v; long long int i=vec_size; // long long int is a 64-bit data type while(i--) v.push_back(f(i)); // fill vector with some values stxxl::sort(v.begin(), v.end()); // sort // check order using STL predicate assert(std::is_sorted(v.begin(), v.end())); [BarvGrovVit97][SandEgnKorst00][HutchVitt01][HutchSandVitt02] Here [DementievSanders03] [BarveVitter99]

R. Dementiev and P. Sanders: Asynchronous Parallel Disk Sorting 5 Multi-way Merge Sort with Overlapped I/Os Theorem 1: Theorem 1: If I/O and computation can be overlapped, N elements can be sorted in time where is the time needed for run formation, is the time needed for merging k= (M/B) : # sequences, k = O(N/M): total # runs.

R. Dementiev and P. Sanders: Asynchronous Parallel Disk Sorting 6 Overlapping Run Formation Easy: Corollary 2: Corollary 2: Input of size N => sorted runs of size ~ M/2 in time 2M in the paper time read sort write read sort write 12 1 1 2 3 3 3 4 2 4 4 k-1k-1 k-1 k k k... 12 1 1 2 3 3 2 4 4 34 k-1 k k k I/O bound case compute bound case run numbers

R. Dementiev and P. Sanders: Asynchronous Parallel Disk Sorting 10 Overlapping I/O and Merging [contd.] Theorem 4: Theorem 4: Merging k sequences with a total of N elements takes time – : time to produce one element of output – L: time to input or output D arbitrary blocks Our I/O thread strategy: – DB elements in write buffer => output step – input step To prove Theorem 4 we distinguish two cases – I/O bound case: 2L DB – Compute bound case: 2L< DB

R. Dementiev and P. Sanders: Asynchronous Parallel Disk Sorting 11 Compute Bound Case Lemma 6: Lemma 6: In compute bound case after k/D+1 steps, the merging thread never blocks until all elements are merged. Notation: – # elem. in write buffer – r # of elem. in the overlap and merge buffers Our I/O thread strategy: – DB elements in write buffer => output step – input step r kB kB+DB kB+2DB kB+3DB kB+y L/ kB+2 L/ 0DB 2DB- L/ 2DB merge thread blocked I/O blocking fetch output

Our I/O thread strategy (the same): – DB elements in write buffer => output step – input step Proof: Proof: similar to compute bound case r blocking fetch output DB- L/ DB2DB- L/ 2DB kB+3DB kB+2DB+ L/ kB+2DB kB+DB+ L/ kB+DB 0 kB+ L/
